First Official Images Of Rooney Mara As Libeth Salander

In August it was announced that David Fincher after a long search that involved a lot of the young actresses in Hollywood it was announced that Rooney Mara had been casted as Lisbeth Salander in the American remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Two of the actresses that were rumored for the part were Kristen Stewart & Ellen Page.

It was a smart move on the part of Fincher going with a relative unknown for the demanding part of Lisbeth. Mara looks nothing like how you would figure Lisbeth would look which sparked a lot of outcry from fans of the books and films.

These pictures courtesy of W Magazine show that Mara without a doubt looks the part of Lisbeth in these photos but it takes a lot more than looks to be able to pull off the character of Lisbeth Salander. Plus Mara will have to deal with comparisons to Noomi Rapace’s excellent portrayal of the character.

I’m really looking forward to this film even if it is a remake. Fincher is a great director, Rooney Mara showed her acting ability in the Social Network and don’t forget Daniel Craig will also be in this film.  I’m also a fan of the books and the films.

The Girl Who With The Dragon Tattoo comes out this December.
