Picture of Rooney Mara as The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

First Look: Rooney Mara Is The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo


Filming is underway for David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and W magazine scored the first look at Rooney Mara all done up as Lisbeth Salander. Right off the bat, Mara looks a little sexier than the Swedish version of Lisbeth (and I certainly don't remember that huge "Salander" tattoo across her chest from the book).

This photo isn't the only peek inside the movie, either: Director Fincher opens up about his vision, how it will differ from the books, and why it was so hard to find the perfect actress to play Lisbeth. Most notably, the article points out that the ending of the film will be totally different than that of the book — but will it be better?

I found that the novel's ending tied up the story quite nicely, but I'm intrigued about screenwriter's Steven Zaillian's take. So, Dragon Tattoo fans, how do you feel about Mara in all that black leather? And are you ready for a different final act?
