Yesterday everyone in Hollywood was freaking out over the casting of Angelina Jolie as Marilyn Monroe and Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander. Oh I know, right! It was crazy! You can't make this stuff up!

But today Jolie has announced she will not be starring in the biopic that was to cover the last two years of Monroes life as told from the perspective of her dog (seriously). It's easy to assume she passed because that idea is clearly retarded, but it's still 10 times smarter than that Loom of Fate bullshit in "Wanted" so who knows.

Rooney Mara however, is absolutely taking the lead in David Finchers version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". She beat out Natalie Portman, Ellen Page, and Scarlett Johansson for it, and now she has to at least equal the performance by Noomi Rapace in the popular Swedish versions of these movies. Meaning she has to look at the ground when she talks and pretend to type on a computer. Better keep Portman on deck just in case.
