Stieg Larsson's Millennium series makes it to Hollywood

17th December 2009

Stieg Larsson's Millennium series is going to be made into a trilogy of films, starting with The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Sony has revealed that it is planning to turn the three books, which chart the adventures of heroine Lisbeth Salander, into Hollywood blockbusters.

An all-star team is being assembled for the project, with the Oscar-winning writer of Schindler's List, Steven Zaillian, lined up to adapt the books, while Doug Belgrad will produce the films.

The project is not lacking enthusiasm either, with Mr Belgrad saying that the novels are "nothing short of amazing", being "very cinematically told, with fantastic characters and page-turning plots".

Salander is a computer hacker who becomes part of a crime solving team alongside journalist Mikael Blomkvist. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is the first in the trilogy, followed by The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest.

It is not the first time that The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has been taken to the big screen, having been turned into a Swedish language film.

Larsson detailed plans for ten books before he started writing the series, but sadly died of a heart attack after completing the third and before his first book was released.
