Rooney Mara ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") is set to produce and star in the drama "A House in the Sky". The film is based on Canadian journalist Amanda Lindhout's memoir about her abduction in 2008 by Somali rebel terrorists. Lindhout was held in chains, starved, and subjected to torture and rape. Her captivity ended in November 2009, after 460 days. The memoir has been optioned by Annapurna Pictures with the intent to develop the project as a starring vehicle for Mara, who brought the book to their attention. No further details are available, for now.
