We may not be getting a Dragon Tattoo follow-up anytime soon, but that’s not stopping David Fincher and Lisbeth Salander herself, Rooney Mara, from reuniting. The Social Network actress and director recently teamed together for a slick Calvin Klein commercial and the one-minute ad is now available online. With Mara playing a model/actress, the black-and-white ad introduces the company’s new fragrance Downtown and features Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ Runaway.
In other Mara-related news, the actress has teamed with Martin Sheen for Stephen Daldry’s Trash. First reported over two years ago, the film is based off the novel of the same name by Andy Mulligan and it’s being scripted by Love Actually writer Richard Curtis. The project is described as being a contemporary thriller set in the third world, about three boys (Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein) who scrape a living picking through rubbish mounds, who discover a leather bag, whose contents plunge them into a terrifying adventure, pitting their wits against corruption and authority to put right a terrible wrong.
According to Deadline, Sheen is taking the role of Father Juilliard while Mara plays an NGO worker named Olivia. Elite Squad & Elysium star Wagner Moura and Selton Mello round out the ensemble that will shoot this year for a May 2014 release via Universal Pictures. Check out Mara in Fincher’s commercial below:
