Rooney Mara Is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Those of you who are thinking: “Hang on isn’t that film out already?” Please get with the programme. Given the crazy popularity of the novels by Stieg Larsson (it is estimated that these days 40% of people using public transport are carrying one of his books) Sony decided to film an English language version of the movie.
If recent specualtion is to be believed the actress beat off competition from Ellen Page, Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, Sarah Palin and Brian Blessed to land the eponymous role as Lisbeth Salander opposite journalist Mikael Blomkvist, to be played by Daniel Craig.
Mara has appeared in Youth In Revolt, A Nightmare On Elm Street and will next be seen in Fincher’s The Social Network. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is scheduled to open December 21, 2011.
