Mara: I want Dragon Tattoo sequel

Rooney Mara is still hopeful for a Dragon Tattoo sequel

Rooney Mara is staying hopeful that a sequel to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will still get made.

The Side Effects star - who portrayed troubled hacker Lisbeth Salander in the US remake of the original Swedish films, which are based on Stieg Larsson's novels - is keen to reprise her role, as development on the next instalment The Girl Who Played With Fire remains up in the air.

"I would love to do it. I really would. I hope that they make the second one. I'm just not sure when they're going to," she told MTV News.

"I mean, I hope they make it soon because I'm not getting any younger. The second one is very physical, so hopefully they'll be making it sooner rather than later," she added.

Daniel Craig also starred in the 2011 thriller, which was directed by David Fincher. A sequel was given the green light in 2012, and there have been reports that Se7en screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker has been hired to rewrite Steve Zaillian's screenplay.

"I cannot confirm or deny what I have or have not read. I'm excited about it. I hope it gets made. I don't know," Rooney said.

The 28-year-old actress, who next stars in indie drama Ain't Them Bodies Saints, also hopes that David will return to take the reins.

"It would be hard to have someone new come in. I would certainly be very sad. I love the character so much. I'd love to do it, but of course, I'd be sad if it wasn't David," she added.

Intellectual snobbery could stop you making a good friend. Just because a person doesn't make it obvious it doesn't mean they don't have the necessary knowledge and know how. On the contrary, a newcomer will have some impressive experience. By adopting a friendly attitude you could form a solid working partnership. You'll appreciate their quirky ways and they'll be impressed by your extensive knowledge. It's a match made in heaven. You'll probably have to make the first move.More
