After a few weeks of speculation and having nearly ever actress in Hollywood linked to the role of Lisbeth Salander for the Hollywood 2011 version of the millennium trilogy. It has been announced that relatively unknown actress Rooney Mara will be taking on the massive task of bringing Salander to the big screen in the English/American version of the franchise. Most recently Mara was in the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Youth in Revolt. I am finding it quite positive that she is quite an unknown quantity as it should make it easier to bring Salander to life.
Mara joins Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgard and Robin Wright Penn who have been cast in the film thus far. I am still looking forward to see who will be in the more minor yet important roles in the film.
