Girl with the Dragon Tattoo heading for TV
Amazon is developing a TV iteration of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with UK production company Left Bank Pictures.
As first reported on Variety, the series will be a standalone drama, which will see protagonist Lisbeth Salander placed against a contemporary backdrop, with new characters and story arc.
Andy Harries, CEO and founder of The Crown producers Left Bank Pictures, will executive produce with Rob Bullock.
The drama will be produced by Amazon Studios, Left Bank and Sony Pictures Television.
Stieg Larsson wrote the original Millennium series of books featuring Salander, who has been portrayed in film versions by Noomi Rapace, Rooney Mara and Claire Foy (pictured).
According to a recent Deadline report, Left Bank is also close to signing a deal with Amazon to produce Louise Penny’s Chief Inspector Gamache crime novels as a series called Three Pines.
