Rooney Mara: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo!

Rooney Mara has won the lead role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo!

Sony announced in a press release today that the actress, who’s the younger sister of Kate Mara, will play Lisbeth Salander and star opposite Daniel Craig in the American adaptation of the film series. Shooting begins next month in Sweden!

Rooney appeared in Youth in Revolt and the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street – she’ll also hit the screen this fall in The Social Network.

Director David Fincher went on a hunt all through Hollywood to find the perfect girl for the role, considering high profile actresses but ended up choosing Rooney, who he’d worked with on The Social Network!

Congrats, Rooney!!

    Hi, Mendel. I’ve to admit my images of Lisbeth have been influenced by the movie. On the other hand, I think Rooney might be more faithful to the original. BTW, I googled ‘Rooney’. Gee, Wayne, what the heck?!
    Daniel was spotted in NY after that? No one tweeted. He might have been stay indoors for the weekend if he is really in NY. Oh well…So I checked out the Hungarian photo shelter after a long time. Ugh, they added only the OLD pics of Daniel/Heike newly :(

    hi Fio—damn girl, you have a good shovel (for digging). I dont recall these pics in my head from delusionally dedica ted. i still would have loved him then–i think i did, that was 2001….AFTER Ice House? (that was my first time with him). he looks knacker’d, schnaggered, and sesxy-wexy. Hey, we all have had those times, RIGHT? ok. then. stop judging. righty-oh!

    now he is on the “straight-and-narrowed” road with The Mitch caravan. (????) (I watched Will Farrell movie–it makes one crazy talk)

    Daniel is Hot Says:

    Guninness and hi Mendel: Aren’t we all nekkid underneath our clothes? But the thougth of Dan under his clothes is a better thought than other people, right? So you were in the same time zone as Dan, good for you. How come he didn’t call you? He did not call me either! Remember his new apt is a one bedroom apt, so he was not having his kid visiting. Does not seem to be a kind of apt Dan would have when he has all his family visiting??

    What the h*ll are you talking about here? I didn’t see any comment previously on here from “Wayne” saying Daniel was spotted in NY since tweeter saw him at BBar! Are you secretly communicating with someone here? In code?

    Hi Guinness

    “was sick the entire time and didnt get knackered, but family&friends were worth it”

    Awww, are you feeling any better?

    “Dan was in NYC—i was a half an hour a way–his cell must be outa service or something, cuz he didnt call. boohoo.”

    LOL

    “looks good in leather lucky girl she is !!!!!!!!”

    Very lucky girl :)

    “Dan is always nekkid underneath–that is such a nice thought!”

    Yes, the thought of nekkid Dan…getting a bit hot in here now…

    ” he looks knacker’d, schnaggered, and sesxy-wexy. Hey, we all have had those times, RIGHT?”

    Right! However, he’s far more sexy-wexy now. Got more pwoarrrr-factor!

    to Fio

    “BTW, I googled ‘Rooney’. Gee, Wayne, what the heck?!”

    LOL! Most of us in the UK would think of Wayne Rooney first when hearing the name Rooney – and yes, Gee Wayne indeed! Right now he’s been all over the papers for cheating (again) on his wife. Even his goal in the match against Switzerland tonight can’t redeem him in the eyes of the rather disgusted public…

    “How come he didn’t call you? He did not call me either!”

    Me neither! But then I am a bit out of his range at the moment…

    Oh, and there is a new Rooney (Mara, not Wayne, lol) thread here:

    Thanks for the link. Wow, she looks nice with a punk style. And I’m sure good paps are in Sweden, yey!

    Aw, I meant to say ‘Wayne Rooney’.
    “Are you secretly communicating with someone here? In code?”
    ‘secretly communicating’ ‘In code’
    LOL! I like your guess because I really miss Daniel Bond.

    to Mendel
    Congrats on the victory of Three Lions! Certainly, he seems to be up against a wall, but NI*E doesn’t desert him. A NI*E statement said: “This is a private matter for Wayne and his family and we have no further comment to make at this time. We have worked with Wayne for seven years and he continues to be a NI*E athlete.” Well that’s a good point…NI*E – slogan “Just Do It!” Yeah, Rooney jiut did it! lol BTW…maybe Daniel will be proud of Gerrard :)

    Ah, an animatronic alien, awesome! Don’t they need real ‘fresh-and-blood’ actors anymore for studio works?

    Hey! I saw more posts on this thread as oppposed to the new Mara thread in the Daniel Craig section of jj. Huh?
    awwww, thanks…I am NOT feeling beh-errr.(Monty Python–”I got beh-ter). anyway, bad pollen season here—everyone has visible, yellow dust on their cars–it is crazy. and when my loopy meds don’t work, it gets into an “upper-respiratory infection” so now I am taking antibiotics and pain meds…my one girl has nasty allergic reactions to pollen, etc, my other girl doesn’t get sick ever. strange genetics. My brother has had the scraping surgery—didnt work, he looks like a racoon all year ’round. soooo–not my blog, surry. but thanks for mentioning it, my friend.

    oh! right… Lisbeth. And Dan. And Jon seems like he is loads of fun!!! For a while. He seems too much in his own presence…hhhmmm. Tom Jones. that’s all I gotta say.

    FiO—-you are marvelous… thank you for your DD. And Mendel—did you see the 2nd movie yet? did you read the 2nd book? did you see the first movie yet? check to see if those are YOUR feet. let me know, k?

    “I am NOT feeling beh-errr.(Monty Python–”I got beh-ter). anyway, bad pollen season here”

    Awww, that stinks! Shouldn’t the pollen season be over soon?

    “And Mendel—did you see the 2nd movie yet? did you read the 2nd book? did you see the first movie yet? check to see if those are YOUR feet.”

    Yes, my feet ;)
    No, I still haven’t got the 2nd book, and haven’t made it to the cinema yet either. But I will, I will, I will…

    Guinness Says:

    ya better hurry….tomorrow starts your weekend, si? :)

    pollen season is always here wiseaass. I live next to farmers who grow and cut something every other day…and if that doesnt’ happen…we have dandilions in the spring that flutter crap…then flowers in the summer and fresh cut grass, and then golden rod–that is wild weeds that grew voraciously this season that i followed down to pennsylvania, then back up here…. and this week the apples will start to be picked and that stirs up all the pollen that sat on them along with the grass the farmers just cut and the corn that needs to be harvested for the cows in the winter…………so NO, it is NOT over. And YES, I love it here. ffflllllllllllliiiipit FECK off cup!!!

    guinness Says:

    both are delish—I would be inclined to get them on my opposing team—hopefully not on the same team….but its fine with me if they are, but i would like them to be on the opposite team–just in case i ever get the chance to hook up with either of them. seperately, of course. wellll, maybe…hey, i don’t share well… I am not a Blomvkist!!!

    um, yeah. and DON’ T START!!

    i am bored, where are you peeps?

    if he is in the business then he should know…yes?

    # kreshjun @marisa83 I’m sorry but that was proven to be false. A rumor. Daniel Craig is not gay. I think it actually makes your chances better about 4 hours ago via TweetDeck in reply to marisa83

    to lol Says:

    don’t be stupid. anderson is a journalist. it looks like two of them are enjoying a social conversation. it is possible for two men to sit and talk to each other with out it being more than that. in any case, anderson is already in a committed relationship.

    Dontgetmewrong Says:

    The real reason they have to have a remake is that most Americans are too lazy to read sub titles. Though why they would go to the expense of the original location I don’t know! as the geographic knowledge of there new audience would be so Hollywood-centric that it would make pigeons dizzy enough to fall off their statue.
