Rooney Mara to Play Lisbeth in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo 2010-08-16 11:00:48

Rooney Mara Will Play the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Finally! After months of speculation, Sony has picked an actress for the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Rooney Mara (Kate Mara's lil sis) has just signed a three-picture deal for the franchise, which is set to begin filming next month.

Mara most recently appeared in Youth in Revolt and A Nightmare on Elm Street, but this should be her breakthrough role if all goes according to plan.

Mara wasn't your top choice for the role when I polled you about the contenders last month, but now that it's set in stone, can you see her opposite Daniel Craig?

Give her a chance. I'm glad they decided to go with someone relatively unknown

I'm not going to pass judgement until I watch the movie... I've only seen her as Taggerty the Slutty Roommate, a role which really didn't give much chance to showcase her acting chops ;)
