Rooney Mara

Get ready to see a lot more of Rooney Mara. The actress had a small but important role in THE SOCIAL NETWORK, but her big breatkout role will be David Fincher‘s THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, which is currently filming.

The Playlist reports that Mara has been cast in the drama, EMANUEL AND THE TRUTH ABOUT FISHES. This role reunites her with Francesca Gregorini, who directed her in TANNER HALL. The story focuses on a young, troubled woman who becomes obsessed with her mysterious new neighbor that looks uncannily like her dead mother.

FISHES is scheduled to begin filming this summer. Paul Schiff will be producing under his Paul Schiff Productions banner. Kevin Iwashina of Preferred Content will serve as executive producer.

I am super excited to see Mara in THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. It’s great that her high profile casting will allow other films like FISHES and TANNER HALL (recently picked up by Anchor Bay) to be seen.
