The "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" star will portray a lesbian who falls for a frustrated wife in the adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's love story, which she published in 1952 under the name Claire Morgan.

Announcing the casting switch, Haynes says, "We're over the moon to have Rooney on board. I've been a tremendous admirer of her work from the beginning, so the thought of bringing her together with Cate onscreen is thrilling to say the least."

Filming will begin early next year.

I am still waiting for someone to helm the The Girl Who Played with Fire!!! 2013 Already! While I'm happy for her on this, I am still waiting for that trilogy to continue.

People are very stupid in America. Santanya was correct in that history is bound to repeat itself for those who don't learn from it! For every action there is a reaction. What is happening in the West already occurred during the Worldwide Depression of the late 20's- early 30's during Weimar Germany and C and E Europe. The Reds were on the rise and the old school conservatives didn't have any balls to deal with it. On top of that in Weimar Germany you had a rather decadent counter culture rise up in Berlin and other large cities. Ordinary German folks got pissed with the economy, with the Reds, and the terrible deterioration of cultural norms/values. The rest is history as they say, and it didn't turn out very well for millions of people. People are going to get pissed off at anything and everything when the economy goes down. Getting subversive crap shoved down their throats isn't good either.
