Claire Foy is reportedly circling the lead role in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" sequel. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the British actress who plays Queen Elizabeth on Netflix's "The Crown" is in early talks to play Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl in the Spider's Web".
The female hacker was played by Noomi Rapace in the original Swedish-language movie. The character was later portrayed by Rooney Mara in the English version directed by David Fincher. Mara shared screen with Daniel Craig in the Oscar-nominated film.
