Rooney Mara Books 'Brooklyn' Role

Rooney Mara flashes a smile in Central Park while filming The Bitter Pill on Thursday (April 26) in NYC.

The 26-year-old actress, who might be replacing Carey Mulligan in an upcoming Spike Jonze movie, has booked yet another role.

Rooney is attached to star in the movie adaptation of Colm Toibin‘s novel “Brooklyn,” according to THR.

The story, set in Brooklyn and Ireland in the early 1960s, centers around a young woman “torn between her family in Ireland and the American who wins her heart.”

    Another great pick by Rooney. This was a great book and Hornby is a good screenwriter.

    I hope we hear soon something about Dragon Tattoo sequels.

    that’s what i love about her… she knows how to pick her roles and is unpredictable on her looks and styles. I love how celebrities become real chameleons on their roles… this is going to be something to look forward.

    Not her real hair, people – a wig for the film Her hair will be short until Sony Pictures and Columbia tell her otherwise (i.e. with Sony in the tank, at -6.4 BILLION for 2011, the very real possibility that there will be no GWTDT sequels – and I’m hoping there WILL BE. . .)
