Fede Alvarez positions Foy as the fiction's iconic character who has decided to leave her past behind her but won't be allowed to by her sister.
For 'The girl in the spider's web,' Foy drops her Emmy-winning performance as Queen Elizabeth II on Netflix's 'The Crown,' takes over playing the franchise star, Lisbeth Salander.
Uruguayan filmmaker, Fede Alvarez positions Foy as the fiction's iconic character who has decided to leave her past behind her but won't be allowed to by her sister.
Foy takes over the role of Lisbeth Salander from Rooney Mara, who played the role in David Fincher directed franchise, 'The girl with the dragon tattoo'.
In the movie, Foy intensifies her role as Salander, a computer-hacking renegade who avenges abused women, but unlike "Dragon Tattoo," she's now the center of the story with journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the background.
While Sverrir Gudnason replaces Daniel Craig as journalist Mikael Blomkvist, this time, the stakes are higher, as Salander must retrieve a program that can access the world's nuclear codes before her evil twin sister, Camilla played by Sylvia Hoeks, gets it.
'The girl in the spider's web,' is expected to make its debut across Nigeria on Friday, November 9, 2018.
Fired from the National Security Agency, Frans Balder recruits hacker Lisbeth Salander to steal FireWall, a computer program that can access codes for nuclear weapons worldwide.
The download soon draws attention from an NSA agent who traces the activity to Stockholm. Further problems arise when Russian thugs take Lisbeth's laptop and kidnap a math whiz who can make FireWall work.
Now, Lisbeth and an unlikely ally must race against time to save the boy and recover the codes to avert disaster.
