Daniel Craig: New 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Stills with Rooney Mara!

Daniel Craig: New 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Stills with Rooney Mara!

Check out Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara in these new stills from the The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, out December 21. Here’s what director David Fincher had to share with USA Today:

On casting Rooney Mara: “I wasn’t looking for someone who kicks ass. I was looking for someone who could project the kind of mystery of someone who is that damaged.”

On casting Daniel Craig: “He reminds me of Brad [Pitt] or Mark Ruffalo. They’re the kind of actors who will do eight or nine takes until the muscle memory kicks in. They make themselves totally available.”

On Rooney and Daniel’s chemistry: “You know how you get up in the morning to make your coffee and you’ll see your cats, kind of curled and natural? That was them. They were amazing colleagues.”

On casting Robin Wright as Erika Berger: “Actually, she wasn’t first on our list because we didn’t think we could get her. We wanted someone archetypically like her, but I felt the same way about Morgan Freeman for Seven. I figured he’d never do it, he’d just laugh at me.”

On his reputation for violent movies: “I have a much more colorful and sordid reputation as a purveyor of violence than I deserve. I just use it as a device for storytelling. (Tattoo) is an R-rated movie, but we didn’t get gynecological with the violence. I think we were as tasteful as you can be with a subject matter like that.”
