Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander
In the North American film version of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo", set for December 2011 release, Rooney Mara will play Lisbeth Salander.
Salander is by far and away the most interesting female in fiction and film of the past decade. Her punk princess gear and makeup are a smoke screen for intellect and vulnerability.
November 2011 VOGUE features Mara, already emaciated, pierced and tattooed, with the prerequisite cliche dyed black hair (very, very Goth). Don't get her angry. This girl kicks some serious butt and she has a near genius IQ.
