Would you like a Fincher Spiderman?http://www.empireonline.com/news/feed.asp?NID=26714
He won't do it, hes expressed disinterest in past interviews for superhero movies.
Well, Fincher was one of the top referenced names for the first movie before then went with Raimi. However his unwilingness to make a clear origin story and to make it grittier (which, quite honestly, doesn't really suit the character) pretty much of placed him out of the race.
I would be OK with it... but this back to high school storyline? It doesn't feel like a Fincher material. But neither did The Social Network :)I'll watch anything Fincher is involved.
Yeah, I agree. Fincher will do good, no matter what. And about that rumored high school setting: I was actually intrigued by the idea and felt somewhat of a "Black Hole" vibe of what Fincher could turn this into. Wasn't that a high schoolish setting as well? Does anyone remember who wrote the Spiderman draft Fincher considered directing? And is that available some place? That would make for a very interesting read.Or if anyone has actually read that, care to comment?
I personally think this would be a backwards step in his career doing this.I don't see any good coming out of it, the guy's not a god.
No he won't! I think Alien 3 was, is and will be all the franchise experience Fincher will ever want or need...
Fincher wouldn't touch this with a borrowed director's bullhorn. In fact, most of Empire's list of 10 most likely are pure fantasy. James Cameron? Come on. He doesn't need to continue a franchise - he STARTS franchises. And if Fincher wasn't interested in an origin story first time around why would he take on Spiderman: The New Class (as it will probably be titled)?Won't happen. It'll go to a new director desperate to work with a bigger budget.
I agree with the majority of what people are saying here. Fincher will probably NOT direct Spiderman Begins. Too bad, we need someone with a good ear for non-campy dialogue and a good eye for pacing and mood.On another note, I remember reading how Fincher found it silly the idea of receiving super powers from the bite of a radioactive spider, and that he wouldn't be able to sleep knowing he was apart of something like that. Really, Fincher? That sounds a wee bit pretentious. Come on--who cares! It's superhero movie.And to the first poster who said he's disinterested in superhero movies, Fincher, like any self-respecting director, actually said he hasn't found the "right" one yet.
"And to the first poster who said he's disinterested in superhero movies, Fincher, like any self-respecting director, actually said he hasn't found the "right" one yet."Oh yeah, I couldn't remember exactly what he said, but thats right. I think it was in a Empire mag interview.
Its a matter of approach. If Fincher finds the right angle for a spiderman story, I'm sure he would consider it. I'd heard his name rumored with stuff like this before, like Batman and Superman. He was even developing a storyline for Mission Impossible: III, that was cancled off as too dark, as usual. LOL. He was clearly considering this though, although, beware, it was a franchise.But this list looks like a pure fabrication. Sure, Cameron and Fincher and whomever "could" direct the reboot. But they won't. And certainly they're not considering it at this point. I'm thinking this is probly a brainstorming list, like, wouldn't it be cool if Fincher or Cameron or x directed this. Its just not gonna happen!
Raimi's SpiderMan was perfect and Toby Macguire was the ideal cast. Sony, please don't do another. It will suck!
it's "Tobey Maguire".
Yeah, and while we're at it, it's also "Spider-Man".
they say (imdb, of course) that fincher was offered a reboot of the batman franchise, before nolan became involved and pitched "batman begins". does anyone know if there's any truth to the matter?
