Rooney Mara replaces Carey Mulligan in Jonze movie

Actress Rooney Mara has grabbed another role from British star Carey Mulligan - but this time because the newlywed has reportedly walked away from the project.

Mulligan fought for the lead in David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo but lost out to Rooney, and now the actress has replaced the An Education star in Spike Jonze's new film.

She'll join Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix and Samantha Morton among the cast, according to Variety.

Mulligan, who wed Mumford & Sons singer Marcus Mumford at the weekend (21Apr12), reportedly can't fit the film project into her busy schedule.
