Rooney Mara is the ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’

Rooney Mara

Newcomer Rooney Mara (Youth in Revolt, A Nightmare on Elm Street) has landed the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander in the Hollywood adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”  Box-office names like Natalie Portman, Ellen Page, and Anne Hathaway were whispered about when the project was announced, but Sony and Director David Fincher have chosen a relatively unknown (and rightly so) for the role.  Lisbeth Salander is a complex character with a brutal background and a strange personality.  This pierced hacker is the kind of role actresses dream of and could skyrocket Mara’s career.  It’ll be  a challenge.  Noomi Rapace has already won awards for her portrayal of Lisbeth.  Can Mara do the same?
