Dec. 6 (UPI) -- Norwegian actor Sverrir Gudnason has been tapped to play the role of Mikael Blomquist to Claire Foy's Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequel The Girl in the Spider's Web.

Variety reported the casting news Wednesday, but Sony Pictures has not yet publicly confirmed it.
