The good news is, it looks like this project is moving forward far quicker than anyone could have hoped. A small (no, very small) downside is that Fincher will mostly "spearhead" the production, which means, he will not be the sole director of the show:
In my head this description makes it sound like some bizarre but very promising hybrid of films like "The Animatrix" and "Sin City". What I really love is to see different directors tackling the material in the same film, which I always find very inspiring. And that good things flurish under Fincher's influence we know since BMW's "The Hire".
Variety also reports the further directors will be locked in shortly ... and I really can't wait to see who they decide on. To be honest, with Fincher helming this you can say for sure that he will pick incredibly talented people for the director's chair and it's still quite unlike to guess in advance who these people will be. But -- to have a little fun, why not do some guessing:
Joseph Kosinski? Joe Carnahan? Tarsem Singh? Juan Antonio Bayona? Spike Jonze? Sebastian Strasser? Zack Snyder?
What do you guys think? And even more interesting: Who would you guys love to see in the director's chair beside Fincher?
