There has been weeks of speculation of just who would play the part of Stieg Larsson’s adaptation The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Well, wait no more because Rooney Mara has landed the part! Be sure to check out pictures and videos below!
According to reports, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara, will star opposite actor Daniel Craig in the U.S. remake of the best-seller novel says Columbia Pictures. Twenty-five year old Mara’s character, Lisbeth Salander, is “the smart but anti-social pixie-haired hacker and investigator. While Craig will role as a “journalist and amateur sleuth Mikael Blomkvist. But question is…was she the most suitable leading lady for the part? Other hopefuls included: Carey Mulligan, Ellen Page, and Natalie Portman.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will be directed by the creative David Fincher. This wouldn’t be the first time Mara and Fincher have collaborated. They worked together on “The Social Network” as well, it goes without saying, I’m sure he kind of had a hunch that she would be quite fitting for the part. Filming is said to begin next month. Their anticipated work will reportedly hit the big screen in December of 2011.
You may recognize Mara in the following filmography: A Nightmare on Elm Street, Tanner Hall, Youth in Revolt, Friends (With Benefits), The Winning Season, Dare, Dream Boy, ER, The Cleaner, Women’s Murder Club, and SVU.
