    Poster & Pics For 'Tanner Hall' Featuring 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' Star Rooney Mara

    It's amazing what can happen in the course of a year or two. When "Tanner Hill" hit the Toronto International Film Festival in 2009 the film's stars Rooney Mara and Brie Larson were virtual nobodies. And now? They are each on their way to the top. Mara, of course, has become the muse of David Fincher, so impressing him with her work in "The Social Network" that she became a top candidate and eventually won the lead role in the forthcoming "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo."
