According to The Wrap, Sony Pictures has hired 'Don't Breathe' director Fede Alvarez to take the helm of the fourth book in the series; 'The Girl in the Spider's Web', which has locked in a late 2018 release date. The 2009 adaptation grossed $232 million worldwide, but was seen as a disappointment based on the strong cultural awareness, coupled with the budget excesses for the r-rated film incurred by the infamously fussy director.

'The Girl in the Spider's Web' is set to hit cinemas in October 2018.
