First pictures of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander.

The name Rooney Mara is not a famous name now, but just like with Noomi Rapace wasn't until she originated the role of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish film, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, Rooney's fame will soon change.  She is set to star as the headstrong Lisbeth Salander later this year in the American adaptation directed by THE SOCIAL NETWORK's director, David Fincher.

Up until now, we have only seen paparazzi pictures of Roony Mara on set, but now thanks to a great article over at W magazine on David Fincher, his career, and his upcoming adaptation of a beloved film and book franchise, we got our first glimpse at Rooney.  I (Javi), for one, am really excited about this project, since Fincher has created some of my favorite films, and I really hope that he can bring something fresh, new and hopefully better to this pretty over hyped franchise. That fact they decided to change the ending and change parts of the characters makes me hopeful. Plus, the look of this new Lisbeth shows proof that maybe Fincher is heading in a better direction. 

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO comes out December 21, 2011.
