Unfortunately it doesn't have to do much with the article. But do take a look at the comments section, where Jenna (thanks!) has posted an incredibly hilarious short film. Funny -- and at least partly true!
For anyone who's been holding their breath to catch a look at a David Fincher directed animated film (or short for that matter): you better relax. It might be a while! As Hollywood Insider reports Paramount's new execs declined the project. And Fincher is shopping it around now.
Being a collection of furiously erotic and violent stories from some well known sci-fi scribes, and produced as a series of short films each to be helmed by a different director (including David Fincher), the production overall felt "too risque for mainstream audiences" for Paramount staffers.
The project will be on hold until another studio will pick it up. But according to the article, Fincher is still confident to get it made. Tim Miller of Blur Studios says, "it's just a matter of time".
Then let's hope that's not a "Rendezvous With Rama" matter of time.
