she just seems so meek all the time. i can't tell whether it's her 'image' or she is just painfully shy and lacking in self-confidence. i think she would do the amazing clothes she gets to wear a lot more justice if she was more confident in them. just my opinion..
Rooney Mara is in final negotiations to join Spike Jonze's upcoming project now that Carey Mulligan has fallen out due to skedding conflicts. Untitled project stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams and Samantha Morton. Jonze penned the script and is set to direct the pic about a man who falls in love with the voice of a computer. Details of Mara's role are unclear.
Megan Ellison is producing through her Annapurna Pictures banner.
If a deal closes, Mara would segue to the Jonze pic once she finishes her work on Steven Soderbergh's "The Bitter Pill."
Jonze had not helmed a pic since 2009's "Where the Wild Things Are." Landing Mara would be the final element he needs to get the pic up and running.
After having a good experience with David Fincher on "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," which earned her an Oscar nom, Mara is opting to take on projects with auteur directors who work in the same style as Fincher.
Besides "Bitter Pill," Mara has also recently worked on Terrence Malick's "Lawless" with Ryan Gosling.
Creative team behind "An Education" re-unites to produce film based on a Nick Hornby-penned script.
LONDON -- Rooney Mara is attached to star in a big-screen adaptation of Colm Toibin's best-selling novel Brooklyn penned by British novelist and screenwriter Nick Hornby.
Mara will play the lead in Toibin's story set in Brooklyn and Ireland in the early 1950s about a young woman torn between her family in Ireland and the American who wins her heart.
The project is being put together by the team that brought audiences the Carey Mulligan-led An Education, with producers Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey formalizing their working relationship in Posey's Wildgaze Films.
Dwyer joins Posey's Wildgaze Films as a partner while novelist and screenwriter Nick Hornby, who is also Posey's husband, will "take a hands off role" in the new look set-up.
The $25 million adaptation of Brooklyn is set to shoot in the two locations the project is set in the Spring of 2013, Posey told THR.
Dwyer said the movie would roll then to ensure Mara's participation.
