Rooney Mara is THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

08.16.2010by: Randy the Ram

There have been various rumors, casting "ideals" and fights to the death surrounding the US remake of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO and the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander. One of them was Rooney Mara (sister of Kate Mara) who we last saw being chased by Jackie Earl Haley's Freddy in A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST., Sony Pictures just confirmed Mara will indeed be taking on the role of Lisbeth alongside Daniel Craig in the first chapter (and its possible two sequels) of "The Millennium Trilogy" the adaptation of Stieg Larsson's literary blockbuster under the direction of David Fincher.

A lot of names were mentioned for the role, from Natalie Portman to Carey Mulligan and Ellen Page, even Scarlett Johansson was apparently after the role, rumors where far and wide, Emma Watson supposedly cut her hair for an audition, but in the end, Fincher always expressed his desire to not go with any of the A or B listers and thus there was a three-way battle between Rooney Mara, Léa Seydoux & Sophie Lowe that ended up with Rooney as the victor.

Only time will tell if Rooney Mara has the ovaries needed to take on the role, I've only seen her in the remake of ANOES and her portrayal of Nancy could be seen as just boring, of course that doesn't exactly mean it's her fault, the whole remake was boring as shit but it doesn't look like she tried either, all the while the character of Lisbeth from the Millennium books and films is a million times deeper and more rounded. Before she can prove her worth, she will also appear this fall in David Fincher’s THE SOCIAL NETWORK aka Facebook: The Movie and until then, I'll be giving Mara the benefit of the doubt.

I think the book and the Swedish movie are extremely overrated. Just a generic crime thriller/murder mystery like every other book on the market. I bought the book thinking it must be something special and the foreign factor made me think it would be very different from American books. But, it was the same old cliche' garbage. I think the reason this book is popular is because of one character, Lisbeth Salander. While every other character in the book is boring and one dimensional, she's a

I think the reason this book is popular is because of one character, Lisbeth Salander. While every other character in the book is boring and one dimensional, she's a cartoon character. I thought her subplot involving her guardian was beyond cliche', how many times have we seen that in stupid movies. I'm happy about this news though because it means none of my favorite actresses will be in this movie. A lot of them were supposedly in the running.

He had a plethora of young actresses to choose from. He could have picked about anyone and he chose bland as vanilla pudding Rooney Mara? So stupid.

Actually, that first photo

gives me hope that she can nail the look. Her performance is another matter, but I have faith in David Fincher. That said, Emma Watson would've batted this out of the park, but the nudity might have turned her off.

Her turn in NOES might be the worst performance of 2010 to date, okay, maybe Fincher can get something out of her, but right now I hate this casting, the look's all wrong (she's too obviously pretty) and she can't, on the evidence presented so far, act her way out of a paper bag.

Pictures don't really do her justice, she was incredibly hot in Youth in Revolt (Kate is still sexier, though). I haven't seen NoES, but if Fincher liked her enough to cast her in two of her movies, I'm on board.

Better in another movie

She was terrible in the new NOES, but then I checked her out in "Youth and Revolt" and not only was she a better actress, but she is damn sexy. I think I like her better than her sister. She has a very innocent and seductive look to her.
