It's a wicked rumor mill. One that should rightfully rattle and bang behind closed doors. With every project Fincher even considers, fanatics everywhere get their hopes up for another unique vision from the master -- only to end up with an ever bloating wishlist of projects that will never make it to the big screen, "Rendezvous With Rama", Fincher "Spider-Man", Fincher "Batman", "Seared", "Fertig", "Chef", "Black Hole", "Ness", "The Killer", and all the rest of them.
As with "The Social Network" I will believe the Playlist's latest claim once I see a first trailer. Until then, with Fincher, nothing is decided.
The greatest real news about this? Repeatedly it's being mentioned that Sony is very pleased with "The Social Network". Which should fuel anticipation for a great new Fincher experience this fall. And at the same time it should give Fincher some time of from now all through the summer to stun us with a couple of commercials, hey, and maybe a new music videos one of these days. And of course: A couple more rumors!
