You mean as Lisbeth? :P I think this shows how completely Noomi Rapace became Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish films :lol: Oops! Yes, I did mean Lisbeth. :lol: Still don't understand why a remake is being done. Actually, I do. :bribe: I guess many people still stay away from movies with subtitles .. I go to nearly as many films with subtitles as those that are English language. Oh well, if the remake is any good at all, I likely will go see it. So far the casting seems more promising than a Brad Pitt/Kristen Stewart billing would be. :lol:

I don't see this girl as Lisbeth, but who knows. I'm not sure I even want to watch the English version, having seen the Swedish version and liked it so well.

Neither do I. Does this (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_u6hA7ebyRQg/StZREOvfW2I/AAAAAAAABMU/LpDnsZksdYI/s400/DSC_9173+Rooney+Mara.JPG) look like someone who can take out two biker dudes?

Not really, but makeup and costumes can do wonders. ;) There is an interview with Noomi Rapace on the DVD extras of TGWTDT, and she looks far too beautiful and "soft" to play Lisbeth, yet she was stunning in the role. I too am not looking forward to an American remake - I'll have to hear the word of mouth about the film before I consider netflixing it.

It's beyond the make up--she just doesn't look fierce. It's in her eyes. However, a good enough actress would be able to pull this off, case in point Noomi Rapace. Does Rooney Mara have what it takes? I don't know as I had no idea who she is until she became a contender for the role of Lisbeth.

Does anyone know if she has acting talent?

I think whatsername(Ashley something or other? I think that's her first name) from Twilight that plays Alice would have been a good choice as far as achieving a similar look.

These are both moot points now, Satellitegirl, but as mentioned before physically I think the best candidate would have been Allison Scagliotti. (http://www.sliceofscifi.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/allisonscagliotti.jpg) Of course, physical appearance is not everything for this role but Scagliotti is an unknown as the director required. She is, however pretty young and the role of Lisbeth requires prodigious acting talent.

Bumping it up with pictures of Rooney Mara in full Salander gear. (http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/movie-talk-first-images-of-rooney-mara-as-the-girl-with-the-dragon-tattoo-surface.html) Her outfit is fierce but her face is not.

She looks like a superhero in that stupid motorcycle outfit. :rolleyes: Regular black leather wasn't good enough, gotta make it flashy or the rude Amerikans will get bored.

Here is a link with more pictures: http://www.afterellen.com/movies/2010-09-07-rooney-mara-puts-on-lisbeth-salanders-biker-boots

I don't hate the motorcycle jacket. Sure, it would be more believable that Lisbeth would wear all black, but I had pictured something far more cartoony.

At least they cut and dyed her hair, and seem to be downplaying Mara's natural girliness big time.

She still looks boring to me, superhero jacket and all.

Of course they cut and dyed her hair, how could Salander have Mara's long blond mane?

And where are the piercings?

If you read the comments in the link, it looks like these pics are of Mara learning to ride a motorcycle, not something they're filming (I was wondering because of the lack of makeup - that was even weirder than the piercings to me). So the jacket may not be the real costume.

And while the cut/dyed hair may seem like a "duh", it would not have surprised me if the US version would have a much cuter, softer look than what is necessary for the part.

Right. Filming hasn't begun yet.
And while the cut/dyed hair may seem like a "duh", it would not have surprised me if the US version would have a much cuter, softer look than what is necessary for the part.With what liberties Hollywood has taken with other "remakes", it wouldn't have surprised me if they had made the character a blond Bond girl type in looks. :P

Saw The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest last night. While this book was my favorite, I thought this was the weakest of the three movies. It completely rides on the fabulous performance by Noomi Rapace, a woman of many (http://clatl.com/images/blogimages/2010/10/28/1288324462-noomi_rapace_stars_in_the_girl_who_kicked_the_horn et_s_nest.jpg) faces.

Let us (or me, since we are the only ones hanging out in this thread or so it seems :P) know how you like it.

Oh and so much for the don't-want-to-work-in-Hollywood talk. (http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Noomi-Rapace-Cast-As-Female-Lead-in-Sherlock-Holmes-2-20599.html)
