Claire Foy from the Netflix series The Crown is in talks to be the lead replacing Rooney Mara.

Now 6 years later I look at Fincher's filmography since then and see nothing worthwhile and I wish he had made the trilogy back then.
I'll take Gone Girl over any Dragon Tattoo movie.

That's his point tho, instead of just taking the leads from Fincher's movie, he's making his own decisions about who he wants for his version of Lisbeth.

The way he phrased it sounds like half of the director's job is casting the film. The Casting Director and the Producer also play a role in that.

I really liked the first with Mara and Craig. I don't know about this one. I didn't think Evil Dead reboot was all that hot, but Don't Breathe was pretty cool...

I hate Hollywood BS-talk, but it's a lot better than saying something like, "Yeah, it sucks that we won't have Mara Rooney's awesome portrayal of Lisbeth Salander again but Mara wanted too much money. "

It's part of his job as well to instill the movie-going public with confidence in this new film.

Except Mara was all on board for YEARS wanting to do this. Doubt it was a money issue. So pissed that the people who made the movie interesting in the US (the foreign film is damn good as well) isn't doing it and we get the book that isn't even done by the author of the series. Might as well just not do it.

Hmmm...so what do you think the reason is? I mean, Mara Rooney made that film, it was critically acclaimed, and apparently she wanted to to make the sequel.

Supposedly it wasn't the money maker that the studio thought it would be so maybe they're associating that with the cast somehow? Has Rooney been in any hit movies since then? The studio feels they have the rights to a profitable source material on their hands, but their first outing didn't maximize its potential so start from scratch?

Why do you keep inverting Rooney Mara's name?

I wonder with no Fincher and that I doubt they would get Craig back, it was easier just to start completely fresh.

There can be only one:



There is no way she is expensive. Due a 180 and get her back. You would instantly increase your WW Box Office and create the buzz this needs for US markets.

Ah, so maybe the things started to unravel and they said screw it.

From what someone said in another thread about foreign box office, they don't get that big of a cut. It did ok in the US, but the money was made overseas if I'm not mistaken. She isn't that expensive when you look at the movies she is doing (she had a part in Her which had a big name cast but budget isn't insane, Carol, and she is doing A Ghost Story). It just seems like the powers that be want to do a reboot. Maybe the others are charging high prices but with this being probably badly casted and not a true book of the series, it seems like a bust.
