Rooney Mara will not be waiting for a Girl with the Dragon Tattoo follow-up for you to see her again.
The Oscar-nominated actress, who is currently shooting Steven Soderbergh’s The Bitter Pill (f.n.a. Side Effects), is attached to star in an adaptation of Brooklyn, the Colm Toibin novel that is being written for the screen by Nick Hornby.
Mara would play a 1950s woman torn between her family in Ireland and the American man she loves. The project is not scheduled to go into production until next spring to ensure the actress will be able to work on it (her fall is already busy with the new Terrence Malick film, if memory serves).
