Forget those other names for the much sought-after American remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Sony, producer Scott Rudin and director David Fincher are zeroing in on who will play bisexual hacker Lisbeth Salander. They are screen-testing five young up-and-comers, all relative unknowns.
The final five Sony tested this week for Salander include three Australian actresses, one American and one French (unidentified). The Aussies are: Emily Browning, who stars in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch; Sophie Lowe; and Sarah Snook.
The American is The Social Network star Rooney Mara.
