Now that 'The Girl Who Played With Fire,' the second episode in the Swedish trilogy based on the 'Millennium' mystery books by author Stieg Larsson, has opened to glowing reviews and impressive box office, Sony has finally gotten around to formalizing their English-language reboot of the first film in the series, 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' by announcing a Dec. 21, 2011, release date. Variety reports that the studio is also continuing to talk to Bond man Daniel Craig to take on the role of the journalist protagonist in the film; the girl with the dragon tattoo has yet to be cast. David Fincher is on board to direct from a script by Steven Zaillian.

Oh gosh, this is getting tiresome: The incessant reboots and comic book adaptations. Add this to the list: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. David Ellison's Skydance Prods., Dark Horse Entertainment and producer Mark Gordon have teamed to adapt the upcoming Dark Horse comic 'The Strange Case of Hyde' for the big screen, according to HeatVision. But this won't be the classic Robert Louis Stevenson tale; no, it will be a reimagining "by making the split personality the center of a Victorian-era action-adventure that sees him go head-to-head against a historical villain." What's next? 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' with Quasimodo as a French spy in disguise?

Sweet dreams from Hollywood ...
