As far as Rooney Mara knows, she may be back for Dragon Tattoo sequel

11.13.2015

When David Fincher's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO remake turned out not to be quite as successful as the studio had hoped, it seemed doubtful that adaptions of "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest" from the same team would follow. Then, just a little over a week ago, word broke that Sony was looking to ressurect the franchise by adapting the most recent novel in the Millennium series, "The Girl in the Spider's Web". Steven Knight is in talks to handle to page-to-screen adaptation, which is apparently looking to recast the main roles.

However Rooney Mara, who played the part of Lisbeth Salander in THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, claims that the part may still be hers and that she'd love to return. The actress spoke with E! Online and said:

I'm doing it unless someone tells me that I'm not—and then I still might do it.

As a big fan of what Fincher and the cast did in THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, I'd be thrilled to have Rooney Mara back as Lisbeth, but if Sony really is wanting to start the series off fresh, I can't imagine that they'd want any ties with the previous film confusing people. The previous report also claimed that one of the actresses being eyed to replace Mara is Alicia Vikander (EX MACHINA).

Should it be possible, would you like to see Rooney Mara return to the role of Lisbeth Salander?

The orignial Millenium Trilogy is still really good. The remake is pointless.

I just realized why those two film performances seemed different. It's because they are indeed two different actresses. LOL!

I enjoyed the first film, and thought Craig and Mara were great. Her character from Prometheis and this movie were so different in the way she looked and acted I almost didn't recognize her. Bring on another film!

Since they started, it' would be nice for them to finish it. I think that, physically, Rooney Mara embodied more the Lisbeth Salander of Larsson's novels, given her slight figure. I wasn't expecting another movie, quite frankly, not for lack of wanting one. Personally I'd just like a yay or nay on whether they're going to be moving forward on another Millennium chapter or not. Fincher kept closer to the book until the change at the end, but Oplev hit the plot points harder and more effectively

Fincher kept closer to the book until the change at the end, but Oplev hit the plot points harder and more effectively in my opinion (the rape scene felt a lot more brutal, but maybe that was because it was because I wasn't expecting it as much). So I feel like two trilogies could coexist.

Rooney Mara's performance was on par with Noomi Rapace

so I'd have no problem with her coming back as Lisbeth Salander. However, I'd like to see Daniel Craig replaced; I thought he was miscast in the role.

I disagree - I thought Mara and Craig's chemistry was fantastic, helping to really elevate it above the original swedish version.

She was fantastic in the first film, so I would definitely love to see her back reprising the role.
