Finally! After weeks of speculation about who would win the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, Columbia Pictures has just announced it will go to Rooney Mara. Don’t know who she is? The film you might recall her in is YOUTH IN REVOLT. Of all the actresses in the running for the role, she was one of the lesser known, but Fincher saw something in her and now she’s set to become a star. The role was made famous by Noomi Rapace in the Swedish version and based off that performance alone, Mara has some big shoes to fill.
The cast already features Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist, Robin Wright as Erika Berger and Stellan Skarsgard as Martin Vanger. Filming is set to begin next month and all actors have agreed to star in the trilogy.
