Anyone who recently witnessed Sylvia Hoeks’ performance as a psychotic replicant in Blade Runner 2049 knows that the actress is destined for much greater recognition and opportunities in the future.
And according to Variety, it also appears that director Fede Alvarez (Don’t Breathe) agrees, as the Dutch actress is about to join his production of The Girl in the Spider’s Web, a sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Claire Foy (The Crown)will play Lisbeth Salander this time around, taking over for Rooney Mara. Hoeks will portray Lisbeth’s twin sister in the film, who at this time appears to be the antagonist of Spider’s Web.
Speaking of spiders, Hoeks was initially considered “…for the female lead in Venom and, even though the role ended up going to Michelle Williams, Sony was adamant about finding a role for the rising star.”
Look for the film to hit theaters on October 19th, 2018.
