Fry, 53, told the The Danny Baker Show on BBC Radio 5 Live that he would be playing Mycroft Holmes in the forthcoming sequel. He said: ‘I’m playing Mycroft in the sequel to the Sherlock Holmes film Guy Ritchie directed with Robert Downey Jr., and that sort of part is fun.’ The follow-up is set for release in late 2011, and the film will see Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law return as Sherlock and Dr. Watson. Also confirmed to star in the film is Noomi Rapace, the actress who is best known for playing Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish language version of the Millenium Trilogy – the film series which includes The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
The Scottsdale International Film Festival, which opens Friday, is celebrating its 10th year. This year’s opening-night movie is the Arizona premiere of “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest,” the latest film, after “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” based on the Stieg Larsson novels. Noomi Rapace returns as Lisbeth Salander, who is to stand trial for murder in this chapter of the saga. For more information on the festival, visit their official website.
The international trailer for “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” has been released and can be watched below.

News courtesy Deadline Hollywood. “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornetâ€™s Nest”, the third and final entry in Swedenâ€™s Lisbeth Salander trilogy will play at the Goldwyn on October 24th. Itâ€™s significant because neither of the first two films, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire, screened for the Academy. Now with some Oscar buzz brewing for star Noomi Rapace, the filmsâ€™ distributor Music Box clearly is seeing the value of getting her exposure in front of these voters even though the only one of the 3 pics likely eligible for an Oscar will be Dragon Tattoo since the latter two, including Hornetâ€™s Nest, were made originally for Swedish television.
Over 1.300 high quality DVD captures from “The Girl Who Played with Fire” have been added to the Image Library. Just like the caps from the first installment, be aware that these include spoilers of the film, so better don’t view them if you haven’t seen it yet ;-) Caps from the third and last part will be added in time. Enjoy!
