Oscar Nominee Rooney Mara Talks ‘Dragon Tattoo’ Sequels

‘I hope that we get to make the other two [‘Millennium Trilogy’ novels],’ actress tells MTV News on the Academy Awards red carpet.

It seems that the combination of Rooney Mara and David Fincherguarantees Oscar gold. The duo worked together on 2010’s Academy Award-winning film “The Social Network” and immediately followed it up with an adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”The movie ended up making $226 million worldwide and earned Mara her first Oscar nomination. So it makes sense that the duo would team up yet again to work on adapting the story’s sequel, “The Girl Who Played With Fire.”

Turns out that Mara hasn’t learned too much about that plan, though. MTV News caught up with Mara on the Oscar red carpet and asked her if she had heard of anything about adapting the next two “Millennium Trilogy” novels, and she didn’t have much news to share.

“I don’t know anything. I wish that I had the answers,” she said. “You know, I hope that we get to make the other two, but I just don’t know anything yet.”

Though Mara and Fincher have seemed like an inseparable team thus far, there is always the chance that he won’t be able to direct “The Girl Who Played With Fire” or “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.” Up next he’ll be working on the TV series “House of Cards,” so he could end up being too busy with that to dedicate his time to the rest of the franchise. Mara said she would understand if he were unable to direct her through the rest of the series.

“Yeah, I would respect that. I mean, of course it would be very difficult, but I would understand that and I would respect that,” she said.

Last we heard, Sony still plans to move forward with adapting “The Girl Who Played With Fire.” “[‘Dragon Tattoo’] continues to do strong business and nothing has changed with respect to development of the next book,” a rep from Sony told Entertainment Weekly back in January. The film is apparently on target for a late 2013 release date, though someone better keep Mara in the loop on that.

Fincher isn’t the only one who has a busy schedule coming up. Mara is attached to films helmed by two other big-time directors: Steven Soderbergh and Terrence Malick. Her take? “I feel very lucky,” she said.

Both films — “The Bitter Pill” and “Lawless,” respectively — are due out in theaters in 2013, but some images were leaked that seemed to show Mara shooting with Malick and her co-star Ryan Gosling for “Lawless.” It seemed fair to ask whether that means production has already started on the movie, but Mara said filming won’t start anytime soon.

“We haven’t started that yet. That’s not for a while,” she said.

Rooney Mara Planning A Film With ‘Twilight’ Director?

An eyewitness tells us that Rooney and Catherine Hardwicke came to a pre-Oscars event together and were chatting up a storm.

Could Rooney Mara be Catherine Hardwicke‘s next muse?

“I am a huge of Catherine’s and would love to work with her. We have something planned, but I can’t talk about it yet. I am really excited though,” Rooney told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party.

Sources add that Catherine and Rooney were talking to each other all night.

Rooney Mara’s Oscars Dress Will Be ‘Comfortable’

‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ actress, who has been nominated for best actress, won’t pick what’s fashionable necessarily, only if she feels right in it. Rooney, who had a dramatic transformation for her role as Lisbeth Salander complete with nipple rings, says she is a fan of fashion but other people’s opinions don’t affect her style.

“I don’t think about it [choosing a dress] in terms of what people say or like or think. I try to find something that I feel comfortable in. I do like fashion, but if it’s not comfortable, I won’t wear it,” Rooney told USA Today.

According to celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, it’s important that when picking the right Oscars gown the star has “to be happy” and she agrees with Rooney.

“Your client has to be happy and feel beautiful. There are so many people scrutinizing the red carpet that it’s about having fun and playing with something original, something couture, something interesting, but also giving people what they want: a glamorous Hollywood moment,” she said.

Rachel was behind Anne Hathaway’s eight Oscars looks, so she knows a thing or two about dressing up stars for THE event of the year.
