Does that sound like David Fincher material? You bet it does! And that's what Fincher and Dark Horse Entertainment must have thought, when they optioned the material to be produced as a CG-animated feature. At least so it is rumored at aintitcool.com.
According to the site, Fincher is set to produce with not set timeframe or release date. Let's just hope it won't dive into development for too long (the likes of "Torso", "The Killer" or "Rendezvous With Rama").
I know many fanatics have been waiting for an animated film by Fincher. And while him producing a film will definitely work, I am still holding out for a CGI-spectacle he will actually direct himself!
Maybe some "Monsters Inc 2" for Pixar? "Hellboy" style?!
Sorry, I'm dreaming ...
Big thanks to Thiago!
