From “The Crown” To The “Spider’s Web”

Claire Foy — aka Her Majesty in “The Crown” — is negotiating to star as hacker Lisbeth Salander in the feature-film adaptation of “The Girl in the Spider’s Web.” Fede Alvarez is attached to direct the project, which is seen as a relaunch of the “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” franchise. It still rankles me that the English translation of Stieg Larsson’s books has “girl” in the titles. It’s not in the titles in the original Swedish.
