Actress Rooney Mara is hopeful about a sequel to superhit film "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo", in which she played computer hacker Lisbeth Salander.
The 28-year-old star earned an Oscar nomination for her portrayal in David Fincher's English-language adaptation of Stieg Larsson's critically acclaimed novel in 2011, but studio Sony Pictures has yet to move forward with a long-planned follow-up - "The Girl Who Played with Fire", reported Contactmusic.
"I hope that they make the second one. I'm just not sure when they're going to. I mean, I hope they make it soon because I'm not getting any younger. The second one is very physical, so hopefully they'll be making it sooner rather than later," she said.
The films are based on Larsson's best-selling crime novel trilogy about an intelligent computer hacker who unites with journalist Mikael Blomkvist - played by Daniel Craig - to uncover a major conspiracy.
Sony originally had "Dragon Tattoo" writer Steve Zaillian write the sequel script, but recently hired "Se7en" scribe Andrew Kevin Walker to write a new version.
Both Mara and Craig signed on to star in three movies when they made the 2011 original, but it's not known whether director David Fincher will return to helm the flicks.
Fincher will next direct "Gone Girl", an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel.
