Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are being eyed for The Girl in the Spider's Web, which is a sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

The forthcoming film, which is scheduled to release in October next year, will be directed by Don't Breathe helmer Fede Alvarez. The first movie originally starred Rooney Mara as tattooed hacker Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig as journalist Mikael Blomkvist.

However, the sequel will reportedly feature an entirely new cast. Portman, Johansson and Alicia Vikander are among the names being considered to take the role of the tattooed hacker in the sequel, reports aceshowbiz.com.

Based on David Lagercrantz's novel of the same name, The Girl in the Spider's Web is co-written by Alvarez alongside Steven Knight and Jay Basu.
