Rooney Mara has bagged the female lead role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

The 25-year-old actress - whose movie credits include Dare, Nightmare On Elm Street and Youth In Revolt - will play Lisbeth Salander in the eagerly anticipated adaptation of Stieg Larsson's novel, according to the Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

New York-born Rooney will star opposite 007 heartthrob Daniel Craig in David Fincher's film.

The 42-year-old James Bond star will also play the male lead in adaptations of the other two novels that complete late author Larsson's hit Millennium trilogy.

The movie will be an English-language remake of the Swedish smash hit film of the same name, which starred Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth.
