Finally US remake casts Lisbeth Salander

DHD reports the role of Lisbeth Salander (for the US remake of the Stieg Larsson novel, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo) has finally been filled – and the winner is actress Rooney Mara (Nightmare on Elm Street, The Social Network).

She physically looks right for the part, at least, but I still don’t think anyone will be able to match Noomi Rapace’s performance as Lisbeth in the Sweedish adaptations (you can read my reviews here and¬†here).

Noomi (below) was perfect. I ¬†almost feel bad for Rooney…
