David Fincher has finally selected his Lisbeth Salander, folks. It’s Rooney Mara, perhaps better known as Kate Mara’s little sister. Or not known at all. She was in the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot. She’s in Fincher’s upcoming The Social Network. She was named after her great-grandfather, Art Rooney, who founded the Pittsburgh Steelers, as well as Timothy Mara, who founded the New York Giants.
She looks like this.
I have no idea if she’ll make a good Lisbeth Salander. She didn’t make a very good Nancy in the New Nightmare, but then again, that wasn’t a very good movie. All I know is that, with a trilogy expected, she’s even more set for life than before. Also, she’ll get to make out with Daniel Craig.
There are worse fates.
