Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy getting graphic novel treatment – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy has attracted millions of readers, inspired a cinematic trilogy, and triggered a Hollywood remake directed by David Fincher (in theatres on Dec. 21). Up next? A graphic novel series.

DC Entertainment will release print and digital copies of books based on Larsson’s novels, according to THR. “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” the first in the series, will be released in 2012, with subsequent graphic novels coming out in 2013 (“The Girl Who Played With Fire”) and 2014 (“The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest”).

“The intricate characters and stories Larsson created in the Millennium Trilogy are a perfect match for the graphic novel format, where we can bring Lisbeth Salander to life in entirely new, visually compelling ways,” Dan DiDio, co-publishers of DC Entertainment, said in a statement. “It’s a distinct honor to work on a story that is already so popular with millions of readers around the world.”

We just don’t know who will be working on them just yet, as THR reports no writers or artists have been announced for the project. Perhaps more details will emerge from New York Comic-Con later this month.

“Stieg always liked comics and it will be exciting to see the unforgettable characters he created come to life on the comics page,” says Stieg’s brother Joakim Larsson.
