Deadline is now confirming rumors that have been swirling for what seems like weeks now, at least since David Fincher’s take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo hit theaters in December, revealing that studio Sony does indeed have plans on bringing the subsequent novels in the Millennium Trilogy to the big screen.
DC/Vertigo comics has announced that they are planning to release a comic adaptation of Stieg Larsson‘s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, along with the other two books in Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy.
Starting in 2012, readers will be able to pick up the adaptation of Dragon Tattoo, with The Girl Who Played with Fire launching in 2013, and finally The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest dropping in 2014. Details such as the creative team or pricing is not yet available, but DC did announce that each book would be split into two graphic novels and that they would see release in both print and digital forms. This is pretty big news and is an exciting announcement for DC.

In early 2009, I recall browsing Amazon for some new reading material. I was after something different, something new, and by an author I had not yet read material from. Topping the bestsellers at the site that month was a series of three novels from a Swedish author named Stieg Larsson. Curious at the books, I became even more intrigued upon the discovery that these books were published posthumously and that they had since become the biggest selling novels in his home country of Sweden.
