After months of carefully choosing her next roles post-The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, star Rooney Mara has gone on a bit of a signing bonanza – at least, a Mara-sized bonanza. Though Mara earned an Oscar nomination for the film (and the bulk of its kudos), she’s shied away from jumping into just any role – she’s signed on for films from auteurs like Terrence Malick (Lawless) and Stephen Soderbergh (Bitter Pill), showing her clear choice to not go a more traditional and commercial route with her burgeoning career. But Mara is easing up a bit, signing on for no less than two project this week alone. Just yesterday, Nathan reported on her apparent casting in Spike Jonze’s next film, in a role that once belonged to Carey Mulligan. As if that project didn’t already sound wonderful enough, Mara has signed on for another project that sounds, if possible, still more amazing. Variety reports that Mara is attached to play the female lead in Brooklyn, based on a novel by Colm Toibin and with a script adapted by no less than Nick Hornby. The film is still in need of a director, but it will be produced by Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey of Wildgaze Films, who also produced An Education.
