    will the millenium trilogy still be completed

    apparently so

    I found one article that says so on reddit that claims that during the infamous Sony hack mails were revealed that claim the trilogy will be completed...by fincher. as well as a fourth film based on a unpublished manuscript by Larsson.

    on another site I found that the score for the second milleniumfilm is already being worked on and will also feature mike Patton.

    yes and no..the way I understood it that mainly TR&AR are doing the score generally, but some bits feature mike as well.



    and the second is planned for release in 2016 and the third and fourth in 2017

    If it happens, it definitely won't be in 2015 as Fincher seems to be wrapped up in three separate shows with HBO right now, two of which he's slated to direct the entirety of (the other one he'll just be shooting the pilot). Last I heard, he's said that the script for The Girl Who Played With Fire was coming along nicely, so there's still a chance he might want to do it. I read somewhere that Sony's rights to the books actually lapse after 2015, so it's possible another studio (maybe Fox, especially after the success of Gone Girl​) will pick them up if they're not too interested in renewing them.

    From what I've heard, Fincher wants to do the other two films in the trilogy, but Sony/Columbia want him to do them for less money than he did Dragon Tattoo for due to the film's lackluster box office take. Fincher apparently doesn't want to do that, and he's also working on other projects at the moment, so it seems like things are deadlocked for the time being.

    I'm talking about the budget, not Fincher's salary.

    Part of the budget goes to his, and the other actors', salaries. Pay cut = same budget for the actual film.

    Right, I get that, but I didn't want to imply that Fincher wasn't doing the other two films right away because he was holding out for more money on his end. I obviously don't know if that's the case or not.

    I still don't understand why that film was so expensive in the first place. Sony wanting to drop the budget is perfectly reasonable, unless Fincher wants to throw in some animatronic dinosaurs for Rooney Mara to fight.

    Stars+Fincher+shooting in Sweden+extensive digital effects+large marketing campaign. It all adds up. I know a lot of money goes towards marketing, especially if it's a highly anticipated film that's going to be shown in many different countries.

    Don't quote me, but I thought there was an issue with Daniel Craig and his salary?????

    I'd take this 'lackluster box office' deal with a grain of salt. No way in hell they would plan two and even three sequels if ше was really low. Besides, a box office is only a part of any film's profit (not even a half).

    I want this trilogy to be completed so badly. I watched Fincher's Dragon Tattoo 4 or 5 times over winter break - clearly my enthusiasm & love for it since its release hasn't waned.

    I'd settle for a different director for the remaining films (not ideal obviously), if it meant Mara/Craig/Zaillian were at least involved.
