GeekMonthly caught David during a break from shooting his latest "The Curios Case of Benjamin Button", which we all expect to be nothing short of a masterpiece.
The article is a little bit of everything: Some bio, some interview tid-bits, and something of a portrait of who David is as a person. In his own home. If he ever gets to be there, that is ...!
It includes some interesting trivia on the techniques and visual effects challenges on shooting "Benjamin Button", David's favorite PS3 game (it's "Madden" -- hey, how about chunking that one into a movie, David?), and, my favorite in this one, the following statement:
'It was Freeman, actually, who approached Fincher about bringing sci-fi scribe Arthur C. Clarke’s “Rendezvous with Rama” to the screen, though, so far, that hasn’t happened. “We never got a script, and, at the time, the amount of CG work that he wanted to do would have cost way too much money,” Fincher explains. “But certainly, if we can solve the problems that we need to in ‘Benjamin Button,’ ‘Rama’ will be this much closer to being doable.”'
Okay, I'm not trying to get anybody's hopes up, including myself. But that does sound like Fincher is still bringing "Rendezvous with Rama" to the silver-screen! And, wow, would we love that ...!
However. Since this is no place for idle speculation, head on over to the Geeks and enjoy their article in the meantime:
