David Fincher Still Interested in ‘World War Z’ Sequel, If It Ever Happens

by Emma Stefansky February 7, 2017 @ 8:28 PM
On Monday, Paramount did a little housecleaning. The studio removed two major movies, Friday the 13th and World War Z 2, from its schedule, and both are currently in limbo. The World War Z sequel didn’t even have a director, so it looked like the project was being abandoned for good, or at least put on the way back burner while the studio focused on something else. But director David Fincher, who has expressed a lot of interest in the project, is reportedly still down. It’s up to the studio now.

Hollywood’s troubling pay gap problem doesn’t only apply to gender; it also applies to people of color. And when you’re both a woman and a person of color, that salary discrepancy can be twice as offensive. Just ask Empire star Taraji P. Henson, who detailed her egregious experiences with Hollywood’s pay gap in her new memoir, which reveals that she was paid about two percent of what Brad Pitt made on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button — and that’s just the start.

How many times will you be afforded the opportunity, in this lifetime, to look at Brad Pitt and say, “In your dreams”?

Can you even imagine David Fincher directing a sequel to someone else’s movie — especially one that was just OK?

‘Hitchcock/Truffaut’ Review: One of the Best Film Books of All Time Is Now a Movie

In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and Francois Truffaut spent a week in a room at Universal Studios talking about movies. That interview became the book Hitchcock/Truffaut, which proceeds systematically as the two explore Hitchcock’s career, analyzing each of his films one by one. The discussion wasn’t filmed, but the audio was recorded, and now that audio forms the spine of Kent Jones’ Hitchcock/Truffaut documentary, which doesn’t so much adapt the book as it does bring it to life onscreen. Hearing Hitchcock and Truffaut makes clear something that’s easy to forget reading words on a page: That this conversation — maybe the greatest ever on the subject of films and filmmaking — was conducted through a translator. Hitchcock didn’t know French; Truffaut couldn’t understand English. But both spoke the language of cinema, which transcends communicative limitations.
