Don't Breathe

The Girl in the Spider's Web: Fede Alvarez (Don't Breathe, above) is under consideration to direct The Girl in the Spider's Web, a sequel to mystery thriller The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It's based on a novel by David Lagercrantz, who continued the series after original trilogy author Stieg Larsson died in 2004. In the book, Lisbeth Salander once again teams up with journalist Mikael Blomkvist to battle "spies, cyber criminals and government operatives." [Variety]

 

The Mummy

Van Helsing: Jon Spaihts wrote next year's The Mummy (behind the scenes, above), which will kick off a new series of movies from Universal featuring rebooted versions of the studio's classic monsters. Spaihts, now writing the script for Van Helsing with Eric Heisserer (Arrival), says: "I do think that if the dark universe works the way Universal hopes it will, you’ll find the protagonists and antagonists of those movies bumping into one another. … I would imagine that Van Helsing, as one of the world’s best monster hunters, would be seen again in other places."
