The good news is we're FINALLY going to get a sequel to 2011's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo!

Sony announced on Monday they are rebooting the literary franchise with an adaptation of The Girl In The Spider's Web, the novel written by David Lagercrantz after Millennium trilogy author Stieg Larsson passed away in 2004.

Fede Alvarez, who has already shown he can bring the tension in under budget in horror hit Don't Breathe, will direct with a release date planned for October 5, 2018 (opposite Aquaman, assuming Warner Bros can hold it together).

Now for the bad news. The film's stars are NOT reprising their roles.

Daniel Craig reportedly wanted a pay raise to return as Mikael Blomkvist, but Sony is looking to spend a LOT less on the R-rated sequel. We still aren't sure why they aren't bringing back the Oscar-nominated Rooney Mara.

So who should play the titular hacker, one of the most badass female characters ever on the big screen? Alvarez has big plans. He said:

Delta Airlines customers watching Carol during their flights this summer ought to note the version they see is NOT the full version of the Oscar nominated film!

The film, based on Patricia Highsmith's novel The Price Of Salt, stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara as two women in the 1950s who have a love affair neither of them expected.

It's a classy, understated, moving portrayal of passion in a time of repression — and yet the Delta Airlines version set for its in-flight TV screens has omitted all — literally ALL — love scenes!

That means not even a single scene where the two women KISS!!! How is that even possible?!?!

The controversy first came to light when comedian Cameron Esposito noticed it during her recent Delta flight, and tweeted about it on Wednesday (below):

Many celebrities have already spoken out on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

And even though Rooney Mara has "a lot to say" about the lack of minority representation in Hollywood, she doesn't want her opinions to be reduced "to a sound bite."

In an interview with The Telegraph, the Carol actress opened up about her own experience with whitewashing — this time, a bit more candidly than she has in the past!

Rooney Mara Shares Her Surprising Experiences With Gender Pay Gap & Reveals Why We're Having The 'Wrong' Conversation!

| Filed under: PolitikRooney MaraGirl Power

no title

We're so glad Rooney Mara is joining the gender pay gap movement!

In a recent interview with Deadline, Rooney opened up about her experiences with salary issues in comparison to her male counterparts. The beauty also took a minute to reflect on the important conversation about women's equality in Hollywood first sparked by Jennifer Lawrence's poignant essay in Lenny Letter.

Luckily for Mara, she has had only one instance of unexplained gender pay gap thanks to her preference for independent films where everyone is typically paid "equal". The actress also revealed there have been times where she has been paid more than men.

Obviously, the pay scale was NOT equal when Mara appeared in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo alongside Daniel Craig considering she was relatively unknown at the time:

"When I did Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, did Daniel Craig get paid more than me? Of course. He got paid a ton more than me, but he's Daniel Craig and no one knew who I was so I don't deserve to be getting paid what he's getting. He's the one putting asses in the seats, not me. I had never done anything, so that's just sort of the way that went."

Well, we guess that makes sense. As long as R.M. was comfortable with it that's all that matters!

Despite the Carol star's good fortune, she admits there's still something to be done about gender inequality. Not only does Rooney believe there's still progress to be made, she also thinks there needs to be a more analytic and thoughtful approach to the issue entirely:
