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!!

    it’s always good to see a film with daniel in it. but what i want is new pictures of him and who ever. he can’t have disappeared completely. i know we’ll probably get some from sweden but i don’t want to wait that long

  • DtM

    According to tweets, Daniel was spotted getting off a plane in NY and then later at the BBar restaurant.
    Must be taking a short break from filming.

    Thanks for the info, Wow, at last we caught Daniel. Daniel seems to have gone directly from the airport to the B Bar restaurant.*growling* :)
    Anyway, he went back to his ‘the base’ NY in US. Enjoy the weekend, Daniel!

    4vikings.com: The american Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara) is in place in Stockholm to train for the great movie! I´ve heard that… http://fb.me/H8kSXZq2

  • to fio

    dd you notice that the people who twittered about daniel in new york did not mention the girl friend. i find that verrry interesting. maybe there is something to that rumor that was on zimbo about the two of them breaking up.

  • tofio

    it’s def strange sats is never mentioned in twitter sights or else ..

  • Fio

    I heard Earl swooped into New England waters Friday night as a tropical storm with winds. Guinness, DiH, are you OK?
    Well, there are new pics of Daniel nowhere, but Rooney’s here. She has been taking motorcycle and martial arts lessons. *ahem* I’ve got to say…Rooney, what a terrible hair style you are?! Uh-oh, sorry, I’ve gone too far…

  • noomi

    oh man, she looks like a little boy. the lesbien scenes are gonna be ridiculous!

  • Daniel is Hot

    Thanks Fio for asking if I and Guinness are ok. I certainly hope Guinness is. I, on the other hand, live across the country from New England and up to the country to the north – Canada. No Earl my way but it is hitting the East coast of Canada now, or will be soon. Hope everyone is ok. Yes, why are we not seeing Daniel. He is hiding. If he is in NY, maybe he is getting ready to go to Toronto for the reshoots.

  • to 313

    reshoots don’t start before end of September. He’s not done with C&A yet, they are still filming in LA..

  • to Noomi

    well according to the book Lisbeth looks like a teenage boy. Noting wrong with that.

  • noomi

    I wonder how daniel can stay that long in the us. for month in La then
    New york. maybe they did got married? sats is an american and dan can stay as long as needed.

  • to Noomi

    he has a greencard LOL

  • Fio

    to DiH
    I’m relieved to hear that :) Yeah, I also hope Guinness and everyone are OK.
    to noomi
    Rooney bind her long hair at the back simply, and seems not to have cut the hair (Liz style) yet.
    When Daniel arrives at Sweden, hopefully she will be perfect Lisbeth :)

  • to noomi

    i doubt there has been any marriage between satsuki and daniel. if there were, the paps would be all over it. a green card allows him to stay in the united states as long as he likes. what i wonder; is he going to apply for US citizenship so he can be duel. it’s pierce brosnan did; he is now hold both irish and US citizenship

  • Fio

    to 219
    Thanks for the pic. I saw it just now. Yeah, indeed, but I can’t believe this to be a hairstyle of Lisbeth :( Please spend money/time to transform her into Lisbeth!!

    Hi Guinness

    had a brilliant holiday, now back and knackered :(

    I presume you’re off on Labour Day today and not blown away by storms, right?

    “I remember the FEELING i got when i first watched that scene!! It was really a great scene that worked. I wanted him to LOVE MEEEEE. And hold MEEEE in the shower all wet in his wet white shirt clinging to his bicep and tricep and legs and he was nekkid under those clothes, right???and then we wouldn’t be snuggling lonnnng!!!”

    Yes, I absolutely love that scene, too! And he was very nekkid under those clothes :)

    to DtM

    “According to tweets, Daniel was spotted getting off a plane in NY and then later at the BBar restaurant.
    Must be taking a short break from filming.”

    Thanks for the info! Must be a short break – maybe they don’t need him for some scenes and he was able to get away for a few days…

    to Fio

    thanks for all those links! I can’t remember if Lisbeth’s hairstyle was described in the book, but I actually like the look of Mara so far – add the piercings and the tattoos, and it could work. More important though is whether she can act or not.
    Can’t wait until we get pictures with Dan from the set in Sweden…

  • guinness

    HELLO Mendel–hi DIH, and thx Fio!! Missed the storm, traveled far, went to my original hometown-saw old friends-watched “The Other Guys” (other choice was Machete. HUH?), was sick the entire time and didnt get knackered, but family&friends were worth it. AND if 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. He could be off to Toronto for those reshoots early? Or maybe he got to stay in his newly acquired apt with his kid? nice. oh, as i was traveling north on the new york thruway—we passed 2 cars a second that were traveling south back into NYC.. so, for 2 hours it was nonstop cars… multiply 60 seconds within 2 hours or something like that… and i actually passed about 7-8 thousand cars on my way home. THAT is insane. And no hurricane symptoms anywhere, thx.

    Sooooo–she isnt gonna stunt double? looks good in leather lucky girl she is !!!!!!!!

    And friend, Dan is always nekkid underneath–that is such a nice thought! yeee haw ! where is he?

  • Fio

    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 :(

    Oops, we did a time-lag attack! lol
    Hi,Guinness :)

  • DtM

    Hi all….Where is Dan? hoping for some good pap pics when he eventually gets to Stockholm. Some of Rooney in this article.

  • guinness

    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

    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??

  • to 226

    @Fio:
    “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.”

    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?

  • Mendel

    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…

    to DiH

    “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!

    to 232
    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 :)

  • Fio

    Sorry typo. I meant ‘just’, not ‘jiut’.

  • Guinness

    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?

  • Mendel

    to Fio

    “NI*E – slogan “Just Do It!” Yeah, Rooney jiut did it! lol”

    LOL!

    to Guinness

    “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

    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!!!

    anderson cooper is in new york, maybe hooking up with daniel?

  • guinness

    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?

  • Gigli

    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

    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.

  • to Gigli

    agree with all you’ve said.

  • to lol

    You had posted that pic before, so do you like that pic so much?
    I see, good for you! LOL
    And you are ALWAYS late, Daniel is NOT in NY.

  • to guinness

    I’m in a new thread. Aren’t you there, too? xD

  • Dontgetmewrong

    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.
