We’ve all settled into the idea of Rooney Mara playing the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. They’ve wasted no time starting production because a few photos have appeared online courtesy of RooneyMara.net, that feature the actress in full hair, makeup, and wardrobe as the motorcycle riding investigator. Take a look…

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo centers on a middle-aged journalist who joins forces with a private investigator named Lisbeth Salander to solve a missing persons case that’s been open for decades. Daniel Craig was previously cast as the journalist, who’ll work alongside Mara as the young investigator. The cast also includes Robin Wright, Stellan Skarsgard, and Max von Sydow.

We have to give the wardrobe department props on her look. They definitely didn’t half-ass her appearance. She’s barely recognizable in these photos. We don’t remember Noomi Rapace’s bangs looking the bad in the Swedish version of the film, but maybe this is Fincher’s way of setting Mara apart.

What do you think? Yay or nay?
