Claire Foy lands Lisbeth Salander Role in ‘The Girl In The Spider’s Web’

Fede Alvarez’s (Don’t Breathe, Evil Dead) new film, Sony’s sequel of sorts to David Fincher’s remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has finally found its new heroine in Claire Foy. She replaces Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander. There was much speculation about who would take on the role with Alicia Vikander in the mix at one point.

Foy is already making a name for herself in the award winning series The Crown and was in films such as The Lady in the Van, Breathe, Season of the Witch, and Vampire Academy.
