Rooney Mara will be ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’

Actress Rooney Mara will play Lisbeth Salander, the edgy heroine of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” The wildly popular mystery has already been brought to the screen in Swedish; director David Fincher will begin filming an English language version next month.

The book is the first in the bestselling trilogy, followed by “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest.” According to our sibling blog 24 Frames, Mara and Daniel Craig have signed on to costar in film adaptations of all three.
