The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Sony never intended to stop with just The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. The hope was that the film would kick off a whole franchise, with subsequent films based on the other books in Stieg Larsson‘s Millennium series. But the 2011 release didn’t do quite as well as anticipated, and then there was some question of whether Daniel Craig and David Fincher would return, and, well, fast forward to 2015 and even Rooney Mara has given up hope.

Until, that is, today. The studio is finally getting the ball rolling on a Dragon Tattoo sequel, four years after the original hit theaters. However, it won’t quite be the film we were expecting. Sony is looking to adapt The Girl in the Spider’s Web, not The Girl Who Played With Fire. What’s more, Fincher and his original cast aren’t returning — as of now, word is Alicia Vikander is the top choice to replace Rooney Mara.  Read More »

Exclusive Interview: Noah Hawley on Fargo Season 2

Noah Hawley Fargo season 2 interview

Noah Hawley did the seeming impossible, turning the Coen Brothers acclaimed film Fargo into a TV series. Not only did he do the name justice, but FX’s Fargo is one of the most acclaimed series on television in its own right, joining the ranks of Breaking Bad, Man Men, Game of Thrones and True Detective on lists and nominations. So far there have been no characters from the movie Fargo in the series, so no Marge Gunderson or Jerry Lundegaard. It’s all been original characters like Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) and police chief Molly Solverson (Alison Tolman).

For season two, Hawley took Fargo back to 1979 with an all new cast of characters. Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson play cops investigating the new crime, and Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons play a husband and wife who get wrapped up in it. I spoke with Hawley after FX’s Fargo panel for the Television Critics Association. Season two premieres October 12 at 10 on FX.

Director John Hillcoat has yet to make a major box-office hit. The director behind LawlessThe Road, and the incredible 2005 western, The Proposition, makes bleak and brutal movies about the violent side of humanity. If this Triple 9 red band trailer is any indication, though, he may have finally brought his sensibility to a commercial project. Watch the Triple 9 Red Band Trailer now after the jump.
