Adapting a beloved novel for the big screen is always a tricky task. Back in 2011, though, David Fincher and the folks at Fox managed to do a more than credible job with the international bestseller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."

Once upon a time, the director of the first Swedish "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" adaptation bowed out of the series because writing, editing, and filming the back-to-back shoots. In 2010, Niels Arden Oplev said, "It was a very clear decision from my side due to the fact that I looked at the production plan [and] they all had to be shot in 10 months, and the two others were not written yet, and I just didn't feel it was possible."

It didn't take long for Rooney Mara to go from acting in student films at NYU to giving an on-screen Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) a much-needed reality check in "The Social Network."
