It’s official, Sony has announced that they’ve signed Rooney Mara (who can be seen in the upcoming Facebook biopic, The Social Network) to play Lisbeth Salander in the Hollywood adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire & The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.
David Fincher, the director for the Hollywood versions, recently directed Mara in The Social Network. So while she’s a relative unknown to most of us, she isn’t completely foreign to him.
And speaking of foreign, rumor has it that Fincher wants all of the actors to speak with Swedish accents—which begs the questions once AGAIN, what is the point of doing a remake of our fabulous Swedish versions?
In other casting news, Robin Wright, has been cast as Erika Berger—which begs the other question, why would Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) stray from someone as beautiful and brilliant as Robin Wright?
