Daniel Craig Won't Be in GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO Sequel?

We may not be seeing the mysterious rebel Lisbeth Salander, as soon as we may have hoped. David Fincher's stylistic "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" brought in $232 million worldwide for Sony, on a budget of $90 million. Sony is reportedly set on reducing costs for the production, which may include cutting Daniel Craig out of it completely.

Craig has asked for a higher paycheck for the sequel "The Girl Who Played with Fire", after the success of his latest Bond film "Skyfall". While his character in the film Mikael Blomkvist, undeniably does not have as large of a role as he did in the first, would cutting this character out fully be a mistake?

Sony has already shelled out a pretty penny for the script, penned by Steve Zaillian, which was said to be ready for production at the time. It sounds like it may need some re-writes after all, Zaillian.

At the moment, Fincher is also not attached to the film. He recently signed on to helm another book adaptation of the hit novel "Gone Girl". Would this film still be a success if it didn't have Craig and Fincher involved?

By the sound of it, there are still many ducks Sony has to line-up before this film can come to fruition.

As a big fan of the book series, I think removing the character of Mikael Blomkvist would be a mistake. But what do you think? Let us know in the comments section below! And check out our video on this news!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
