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?

"Rooney"/ "Noomi"... could it be that Rooney was chosen for the part because her name sounds alot like Noomi (Rapace) the Swedish actress'? Hmmmm...
Leave it to Hollywood to case an actress who doesn't have anything reminiscent of Lisbeth Sanders. Wrong hair, wrong eyes, wrong personalities. The only thing correct is hegiht and weight.
Hollywood should have cast the amazing Swedish actress who was a perfect Lisbeth Sanders.
La Femme Nikita was totally ruined when Hollywood recast-rewrote the script. It didn't work.
fernrose, I agree completely! I hated the way they perverted Luc Besson's la femme Nikita with that hollow, formulaic tv series and refused to watch it at all (now I see the CW is taking another shot at f*^#%ing it up). I wish Hollywood would invest the money and effort they put into remaking Americanized versions of outstanding,original foriegn films and instead promote the original's release and exposure to U.S. audiences at large.
I am sure she is a fine actress but Hollywood is going to ^^^^ UP this movie.
Trust me see the original, read the books.
