Mechant, Lund Join “Girl in the Spider’s Web”

British comedian Stephen Merchant and Norwegian actress Synnove Macody Lund have joined the cast of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” sequel “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” which is currently in production.

Specifics of their roles are under wraps. Claire Foy (“The Crown”) plays hacker Lisbeth Salander, Sverrir Gudnason (“Borg & McEnroe”) is journalist Mikael Blomkvist, Sylvia Hoeks (“Blade Runner 2049”) plays Salander’s fraternal twin sister Camilla, and Lakeith Stanfield (“Get Out”) is an NSA security expert tracking Salander.

The fourth novel in the series, the first penned by David Lagercrantz, serves as something of a standalone and is the first in the best-selling series to be produced into an English-language film in its initial adaptation.

Fede Alvarez is directing the project which is filming in Berlin and Stockholm ahead of a November release.
