Shoot: A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
“You kind of learn to self-sabotage with things you don’t want to get,” she tells EW. “Sometimes you don’t want to get something, but you do a really good job and you get it anyway. That’s kind of [what happened] with A Nightmare on Elm Street-I didn’t really even want it. And then I went in [to audition], and I was like, ‘Fuck. I definitely got that.’”
So how did she feel post-Elm Street?
“I didn’t want to act anymore,” Mara continues. “I was like, this isn’t what I signed up for. If this is what my opportunities are going to be like, then I’m not that interested in acting. So I was very discouraged and disheartened. And then I got the Social Network script. That kind of re-inspired me.”
I understand that that the remake wasn’t a black buster, but now-a-days she can go play in the street. I support actors who support their horror roots and Rooney Mara bashing Elm Street (2010) after the fact, is a two-faced bitch. She is the Kelly Kelly of Hollywood for me. Yeah I know The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo put her on the map, but us horror fans will support you with our last breath and you turn your back on us… Go play with Mike Graham and a bottle of booze.
The best thing to come from this remake was the many crossover podcast debates from the Horror Podcasting Community and Thomas Dekker getting work. Massive.
