A new television adaptation based on Stieg Larsson's famous heroine Lisbeth Salander is reportedly being developed with a new setting, characters, and plot.

AceShowbiz - A new TV show based upon "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" heroine Lisbeth Salander is reportedly in the works at Amazon.

According to Variety, the programme, which shares a title with Stieg Larsson's famous book, will "not be a sequel or continuation of the story from the books or the films into which they were adapted."

Instead, the series will place Salander in today's world - with a new setting, characters, and plot.

It remains to be seen who will be cast as Salander. Noomi Rapace first took on the role in the 2009 Swedish movie "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" while Rooney Mara played the character in the 2011 film of the same name. "The Crown" 's Claire Foy played Salander in 2018 movie "The Girl in the Spider's Web".

A release date for the series, which will be produced by Amazon Studios and Left Bank in association with Sony Pictures Television, has yet to be announced.
