Rooney Mara Pictures as Lisbeth Salander

Rooney Mara Pictures as Lisbeth Salander

In this great preview piece in W by Lynn Hirschberg on director David Fincher, there are some new photos of Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander.

Some things to note: Fincher thinks of Salander as a modern day Pippi Longstocking; he calls her “a goth Pippi, ” and the script by Steven Zaillian does not stick too close to the book:

The script…departs rather dramatically from the book. Blomkvist is less promiscuous, Salander is more aggressive, and, most notably, the ending—the resolution of the drama—has been completely changed. This may be sacrilege to some, but Zaillian has improved on Larsson—the script’s ending is more interesting.
