  • Noomi Rapace originally portrayed Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Claire, who is known for her work on The Crown, will portray the famous role previously played by both Rooney Mara and Noomi Rapace.

Sony Pictures has debuted the first trailer for The Girl in the Spider's Web, introducing Golden Globe-winning The Crown breakout Claire Foy as the new incarnation of Stieg Larsson's iconic vigilante Lisbeth Salander.

While Foy's status will be elevated by her turn as Salander, "The Girl in the Spider's Web" should also be something of a breakthrough for director Fede Álvarez. The film's full cast includes Sylvia Hoeks, Lakeith Stanfield, Stephen Merchant, Vicky Krieps, Cameron Britton, and Claes Bang from The Square.

The popular actress is set to play Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider's Web, which is based on the book of the same name. Fincher's 2011 adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was not a commercial success, and plans to adapt the next two books went no further, leading to this reboot.

Steve Bruce faces uncertainty over his future at Aston Villa
Aston Villa have suspended CEO Keith Wyness amid suggestions that the HMRC has issued a winding up order against the club, according to Sky News .

This film follows on from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo although this one appears to be more action-focused, with plenty of stunts and dramatic scenes.

The Girl in the Spider's Web releases November 9.

In the trailer, Foy's character rigs a trap for such a man, who she has no qualms about shooting in the crotch with a stun gun.
