Megan Fox Robbed Again! ‘Crown’s’ Claire Foy Is New Lisbeth Salander!

Claire-Foy

Earlier this year, Sony Pictures announced it was looking to replace Rooney Mara in the role of emotionally disturbed hacker Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider’s Web, a new volume in late Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series – made popular by its first novel, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

Naturally, we assumed Megan Fox was a shoo-in. How else to keep the franchise alive after the initial’s release was met with a tepid response at the box office without the casting of a hot chick? The announcement reportedly drew interest for the role from stunners Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Alicia Vikander – all excellent choices.

Sadly, the studio found an actress with less sex appeal than Mara: Claire Foy (”The Crown’s”). Has this Foy person even done a nude scene or semi-nude photo shoot? Was Fox really not available? I mean, c’mon, first screwed out of Wonder Woman role and now this!

Fede Alvarez, director of exceptional fright flicks Don’t Breathe and 2013’s Evil Dead remake, is at the helm of the sequel.

Alvarez lied said:

I couldn’t be more thrilled about Claire taking the reins of the iconic Lisbeth Salander. 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.

“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is the first book in what is collectively known as the Millennium Trilogy, novels by late Swedish author Stieg Larsson. They have sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Larrson, a journalist and political activist, died of a heart attack at the age 50 in 2004. According to his longtime live-in girlfriend Eva Gabrielsson, he left behind pages to his unfinished fourth book in the series.

“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” is not based on those pages, but instead written by David Lagercrantz with the Larsson’s estate’s support. Gabrielsson calls Lagercrantz an “idiotic choice” for carrying on the book series.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web is slated for release Oct. 5, 2018.
