Rooney Mara @ Costume Designers Guild Awards03

Once she completes shooting Joe Wright’s ‘Pan’ Rooney Mara will board the Jim Sheridan film ‘Secret Scripture’. The film is based on the 2008 novel of the same name by Sebastian Barry.

Mara steps into the project after Jessica Chastain dropped out previously.

‘Secret Scripture’ centers on a 100 year-old woman, played by Vanessa Redgrave, who recounts her life in various mental institutions after surviving a traumatic past at the hands of a vindictive Catholic priest. Mara will play the young Redgrave.
