The first official image of Mara Rooney dressed in her role as Lisbeth Salander has surfaced, and it's appearing on this month's cover of W magazine as part of a visit to the film's set.
In the article Fincher talks about how he first met the actress while she was auditioning for the part of Mark Zuckerberg's girlfriend in The Social Network. The director was impressed with the confidence and demeaor of Mara, and when the opportunity to direct the remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo presented itself, Fincher suggested that she audition for the part.
"Before I read the book, I didn't think I could do it," Mara told W's reporter. "I locked myself in a room for a week and read all three books, and decided I really wanted to be Lisbeth. But I thought I had no shot at it."
But she did get the part and eventually prepared both mentally and physically for theharrowing role of Salander. One of the film's scenes depicts the rape of Lisbeth, something that shapes the core of her character and why she involves herself with solving the murder at the heart of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. As for her physical appearance, Fincher had something in mind. "Lisbeth is the goth Pippi [Longstocking]," he observes.- W magazine. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Photos showing Rooney Mara working on the movie have turned up on a fan site for the actress. While the series of 13 photos does show the black-haired Mara on a motorbike and rehearsing a scene while helpers surround her, she might be practising on the motorcycle when the photographs were taken. That may also mean that the way Mara looks in these photos, with her short dark hair, may not be the way that she appears as her character in the remake.- Rooney Mara Online.

Sony Pictures president Amy Pascal spoke with The Wrap about her company's planned remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and she was adamant that the movie would go into production soon.
"Well, I’m going to try to get these movies out as fast as possible. But, you know, we’ll have the first one next Christmas. And hopefully, the next two as quick as I can get them. We’re trying to figure that out now," Pascal told the site's Sharon Waxman.
The studio head also said that she hopes David Fincher will direct all three films in the series, and that a search will begin shortly to find the actress to play the film's female lead. "It's the greatest character for a girl since I-don't-know-what," Pascal explained. She then brushed off a thought from Waxman that the character of Lisbeth in the American remake won't look so punk and retain the stud in her nose that the original Swedish film's Noomi Rapace wore.
"Oh, just wait and see," Pascal shot right back. "We're doing the book. That's why we hired David Fincher. We're going to really do this, in all their glory. Otherwise why do it? They're very R-rated movies. It's the shock of what’s really going on underneath the surface of society. If you don't actually make good on that, you haven't told the story."
