Los Angeles - The sequel to US remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is still in "development".

Sony has confirmed The Girl who Played with Fire will continue to be made despite some believing the film - starring Daniel Craig as a former investigative journalist and Rooney Mara as private investigator - has underperformed, having only made $60m in the US since its release on December 20.

2013 release

A representative for the studio told Entertainment Weekly: "Dragon Tattoo continues to do strong business and nothing has changed with respect to development of the next book."

The follow-up to the movie has a planned late 2013 release date and both Rooney and Daniel are signed up to star in the follow-ups.

However, director David Fincher has yet to commit to the second project.

The film - a remake of an original Swedish version starring Noomi Rapace - has made $72m at the worldwide box office, and cost $90m to make.
