30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Sometimes Hollywood shoots itself in the foot. By all accounts, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo should have spurred a massively successful franchise. The 2011 film was a remake of a Swedish language film based on the massively successful Millennium series by author Stieg Larsson. The film was both a critical and financial success. It even garnered an Oscar nom for its star Rooney Mara. Reported script difficulties kept the series from moving forward. As of 2015, it was announced that the series would be rebooted with a new cast, and would focus on later books written after the death of original author Stieg Larsson.
