If you’re wondering about that ‘Dragon Tattoo’ sequel . . .

I’ve been asked about this a few times, and had to respond with an authoritative “I dunno,” so it’s nice that Entertainment Weekly has the answer today: “The Girl Who Played With Fire,” sequel to 2011’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” is still in the screenplay stages and likely won’t be in theaters anytime soon, certainly not in 2013. Steven Zaillian, who wrote the first movie, is at work on the script; director David Fincher is not signed but “remains the first choice and hasn’t ruled out returning.” Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara are signed for the sequel. I hope this movie happens; this book was my favorite of the Stieg Larsson “Dragon Tattoo” trio. But we shall see.
