We have seen a few pics of star Rooney Mara on location for The Girl the Dragon Tattoo, but these appear to be the first where she’s in costume as Lisbeth Salander. She’s got the jet-black hair, the piercings, the boots. There is also a glimpse of her inside a place called “Salvation Tattoo.” A brief Google search turns up nothing — does this particular tattoo parlor have any significance in the books? (I’ll read them before the movie comes out. I swear.)
Daniel Craig, Stellan Skarsgård, Robin Wright, Christopher Plummer, Joely Richardson, Steven Berkoff, and David Dencik star alongside Mara in David Fincher’s adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which hits theaters December 21, 2011. Hit the jump to see the set images.
It’s mostly more of the same, but fansite Rooney-Mara.com has a few more images if you’re interested.
The synopsis for Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo:
Harriet Vanger, a scion of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families disappeared over forty years ago. All these years later, her aged uncle continues to seek the truth. He hires Mikael Blomkvist, a crusading journalist recently trapped by a libel conviction, to investigate. He is aided by the pierced and tattooed punk prodigy Lisbeth Salander. Together they tap into a vein of unfathomable iniquity and astonishing corruption. [Amazon]
