David Fincher, Rooney Mara May Reteam for Espionage Film

Actresses Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara attend the 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival outstanding performer of the year award on February 1, 2014 in Santa Barbara, California.

American Hustle writer Eric Warren Singer is in talks to adapt Jason Matthews's novel Red Sparrow, with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo collaborators David Fincher and Rooney Mara reportedly looking to join the project as well. The book is about a present-day Russian intelligence officer and trained seductress (Mara), who starts up a relationship with a CIA agent and ends up turning double agent. According to Deadline, it's still early days and Singer has yet to adapt the book, meaning it will probably still be finished long before they get started on a Dragon Tattoo sequel. Can you guys hurry up with that already?
