Variety reports that the rumors are true, Claire Foy of The Crown will take over for Rooney Mara and play Lisbeth Salander in the Daniel Craig-less sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Claire will be ditching the fancy hat and gloves and donning some dark hacker gear to star in The Girl In The Spider’s Web. Director Fede Alvarez said this about casting her:
“Claire is an incredible, rare talent who will inject a new and exciting life into Lisbeth. I can’t wait to bring this new story to a worldwide audience, with Claire Foy at its center.”
What he doesn’t say is how Claire is going to inject new and exciting life, and I have a pretty good idea: CORGIS! Claire should sneak onto The Crown set and swipe two or three of those yapping bitches (and maybe a photo of Prince Philip’s young butt from season one) and use them in The Girl In The Spider’s Web. Those corgis may not stand tall, but those little paws move fast and could probably hack a hell of a lot quicker than Lisbeth!
