Rooney Mara Is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander
Rooney as Noomi as Lisbeth. Of course!

Rooney Mara is the new Noomi Rapace, err, Lisbeth Salander in the upcoming retake on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. We think. Because not all of those are real words.

The Social Network Star is currently filming Director David Fincher’s take on the crime thriller trilogy that you totally borrowed from a friend because you didn’t want to be seen buying that book that everyone was reading. It’s cool. We understand.

But real talk, we read all three and loved them. Rooney Mara plays pint sized, goth, supergenius Lisbeth Salander. Oh, and she’s bisexual. Brown chicken brown cow!

The sex scenes are steamy, and the books are a fantastic quick read. But please oh please do not jump straight from the books to the American movie coming out this year. The original Swedish films are fantastic and available for streaming on Netflix! And Noomi Rapace absolutely kills it as the original Lisbeth Salander. You really have no excuse not to watch them.

In any case, Rooney as Noomi as Lisbeth is on the cover of February’s W Magazine.

Are you pleased with her take on this lady-loving heroine?

    Looks Awesome! I can’t wait for the American movie to come out. Not because I think it will be better than the Swedish films- just because I love the story so much and want to watch it again and again!
    I’m not very hopeful to think that she can beat Noomi’s acting, but perhaps a different take on the character will be interesting.
