Rooney Mara sure is busy finding new projects, as yesterday it was revealed she’s in talks for Spike Jonze’s new movie, and now Variety says she’s attached to star in the romantic drama Brooklyn.
Nick Hornby will adapt the screenplay from Colm Toibin’s novel, which is about a small-town Irish woman who must decide between two men in two different cities. The producers are currently seeking a director, and are eying a spring 2013 shoot. The adaptation will be budgeted between $20 million and $25 million.
Following Dragon Tattoo Mara has been much in demand, although as the David Fincher film was such a distinctive role, she’s still somewhat untested. However she’s definitely talented enough to be a big star.
