The 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' actress will reportedly star as Marie, the love interest of the main character (played by Josh Brolin) in the movie about a man who is falsely imprisoned for 15 years without knowing why, before one day being released and given the tools to fight those who kidnapped him.
Rooney - who previously had a small role in 'The Social Network' - is preparing for the release of her first major starring role as Lisbeth Salander in 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' in December.
