David Fincher Is The Chef

+++ UPDATED 11/27/2008 +++
For some obscure reason the news of a possible Reeves and Fincher collaboration gives some people a bad itch. I don't get it. For me personally it was the first time I have stumbled over this rumor; the only other project I have heard going through the treadmill that was somewhat like it was "Seared" (Kitchen Confidential), which Brad Pitt was attached to some 5 or so years ago.

Anyway, thanks Thiago, for finding another site reporting on this. The best part of that is the comments section, where idle speculation is ongoing on just what this project may actually be all about.

It will crack you up!
Why not add yet another project to David Fincher's already crowded production slate? Rumor has it, Fincher is eying a new project developed by Keanu Reeves, called "Chef".

To add to the mystery nobody seems to know what the story of it is supposed to be, nor further details about the project's current status. Anything with Fincher sounds like fun, in my opinion, and I guess by the time 2009 rolls around, we'll know a little better just what Fincher decides on doing next.

With about a dozen projects with Fincher on and off the director's chair one should take this as nothing more than a rumor. Albeit a good one.

Thanks Thiago for the find!

Slashfilm: David Fincher attached to Keanu Reeves' Chef Project


  1. These aren't news. He's been attached to Reeves' project for quite some time now. It's about a cook, and Keanu is set to star in it.

  2. Yes, this is Fincher's live-action backstory of South Park's Chef. It's all about how he fell from being a world-renowned R&B singer to a Colorado school cafeteria cook. This is totally true.

  4. Great to see so much "anonymous content" around. However, please watch your language because I want to be able to keep all comments, no matter how non-constructive they might seem.

    Also, I understand it's quite fun to post "anonymous". But for the sake of more constructive conversations nick names seem like a brilliant idea.

    Thank you.

  5. Aww, now i'm curious what the poster who got censored wrote..

  6. Let me express that I don't mind debates, even if they might get hot at times. I have to draw a line somehwere, about what can be posted and what not before things get out of hand.

    The rules are clear:

    Don't use foul language!
    Express what you think,
    but be more creative.

    Here is what the anonymous poster wrote. I deleted the comment for the use of an improper word. And apart from that it's unclear who he was referring to.

    "Wow, you're a funny little ------.
    Another fincher geek with no clue.

    Please use that big brain of yours before you let those fat fingers fall on the keyboard, 'mmmkay?"
