David Fincher Talking With New Regency About Potential Contract
David Fincher has never made a contract with a studio before in his career, but that may soon not be true anymore. The Social Network filmmaker has been involved in talks with New Regency to formulate a production pact that would have him working with the company on future projects.
Variety first got word about the possible deal, but details are currently very slim. When the trade reached out for comment the studio wouldn't confirm if the detais of the deal involved film, television or possibly both. Previously this likely wouldn't have been a question, however, Fincher is currently working on the Netflix television series House of Cards, which debuted its first trailer just yesterday (the show will premiere February 2nd). The report notes that the deal works in New Regency's favor as they have been looking to produce edgier, more adult-oriented material, and who better to get than the guy who made Se7en, Fight Club, and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo?
At this stage Fincher's next move is really anybody's guess. There's is still talk about him potentially returning to direct The Girl Who Played With Fire, the sequel to his 2011 thriller with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, but he is also developing his own adaptation of Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Back in October it was reported that the director is interested in reteaming with Brad Pitt again for the latter project, and would have the star play Ned Land, but the problem is that Disney recently put a three month hold on the project while they decide the best way to move forward with it.
