Rooney Mara Gets Dragon Tattoo

Rooney Mara has been cast as Lisbeth Salander in 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'.

The 'Social Network' actress will star alongside Daniel Craig in the English language remake of the Swedish novel.

The 24-year-old beauty beat a number of high profile actresses including Kristen Stewart and Carey Mulligan to the role in the David Fincher-directed piece.

It will be the first of a trilogy of films and she will reprise the role in 'The Girl Who Played With Fire' and 'The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest'.

The film - adapted for the screen by Steve Zaillian and produced by Scott Rudin, Cean Chaffin, Ole Sondberg and Soren Staermose - is due to begin shooting in September following a cinematic release in December 2011.

The original novel, written by Stieg Larsson, has sold in 40 million copies in 44 countries, and all three in the series have topped the New York Times Best Seller lists.
