There may be hope for fans of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”!

While there has been little to no action on the next big screen installment of the English-language version of the Stieg Larsson trilogy, “Dragon Tattoo” star Daniel Craig says he’s definitely up for making the second movie in the trilogy, “The Girl Who Played With Fire.”

“Of course I’ll embrace [the movie], especially if [David] Fincher does it,” Daniel told The LA Times of a possible sequel, referencing the first film’s director.

While David has yet to direct a sequel in his storied career, Daniel said he’s going to try to persuade him to sign on for the next film.

“I’m definitely going to work on him,” he said.

“The Girl Who Played With Fire” centers around Lisbeth Salander (played by Rooney Mara) and Daniel’s Mikael Blomkvist as the pair investigate a sex-trafficking ring.
