Today we get first pics from the New York set of the new movie, The Bitter Pill starring Rooney Mara and Jude Law. Rooney is definitely showing off a different look with her new film. Gone are the days of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I almost didn’t recognize Rooney from the pics from the set of her new film. The Bitter Pill also stars Channing Tatum alongside Rooney and Jude, and it is directed by Steven Soderbergh, who did Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen alongside a whole long list of other credits. I’m fascinated about this one…
Rooney does look seriously different for her new role, right? Her hair is long and straggly and almost orangey-blonde. Her signature jet black hair from her role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is long gone, hidden beneath her new auburn locks, and she has covered up her high glamor look from the Academy Awards, where she was one of my standout looks from the red carpet.
The subject matter of his new movie isn’t all light and frothy; it chronicles a woman who turns to prescription meds as a way of dealing with her husband’s upcoming release from prison. I do love Rooney, and I’m fascinated to see how she does with this role. She looks happy and actually pretty cute in these pics, but I’m expecting some pretty dark scenes in the movie. Jude Law could throw this all up in the air but Steven Soderbergh is a great director so I’m still hopeful and keen to see what he does with this one. Are you excited to see this when it comes out?
