Rooney Mara! Now before you say who's Rooney Mara? She was most recently in A Nightmare on Elm Street and can be seen this fall in David Fincher's The Social Network. Coincidental since Fincher is also directing the American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Mara will star alongside Daniel Craig who was previously announced taking on the male lead role of the discredited journalist, Mikael Blomkvist.
Mara reportedly beat out others up for the role including, at one time, Natalie Portman, Ellen Page and Carey Mulligan. The movie is set to start shooting next month in Sweden and will be released by Columbia Pictures on December 21, 2011.
So what do you think of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander? have you read the books? Have you seen the Swedish movies with Noomi Rapace starring as Lisbeth?
