David Fincher may not be directing a Steve Jobs biopic, but that doesn't mean he isn't keeping busy as his latest film, 'Gone Girl,' hits theaters later this year. The film, which is based on the best selling novel, stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, and now the first 'Gone Girl' trailer has hit the web.
In a move that really shouldn't surprise too many people, the ever-picky David Fincher is out of the director's chair for the upcoming (and untitled) Steve Jobs biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin. The 'Zodiac' and 'The Social Network' director has a reputation for being demanding, and it looks like Sony balked at his requested fee and level of control.
In 2010, director David Fincher, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and producer Scott Rudin struck box office and Oscar gold with 'The Social Network,' which told the story of Mark Zuckerberg. Now, that same team is looking to officially reunite and tell the story of one of the few people in tech history bigger than the creator of Facebook: Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
We weren't at all surprised yesterday to see HBO picking up buzzy Jack Black comedy 'The Brink,' what with 2014 bringing the final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies,' and now the premium cable network has added even more cinematic pedigree to its lineup. David Fincher has re-teamed with 'Gone Girl' writer Gillian Flynn for an HBO remake of UK series 'Utopia,' sure to attract even more big-name talent to the network.
Before Ben Affleck tackles the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman,' shooting later this year, he'll be seen in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' alongside 'The World's End' star Rosamund Pike. A new look at the film, hitting theaters October 3, has graced the cover of the latest Entertainment Weekly issue, shot by Fincher himself and revealing just how crazy in love (emphasis on crazy) Affleck's character is with his wife.
Netflix's original drama 'House of Cards' began its butchery with the most recent season 2 trailer, premiering a host of new footage from the new run of episodes kicking off Valentine's Day 2014, but there's still plenty to see. For instance, check out a cryptic teaser with Kevin Spacey enjoying a rubber band, or re-watch the first season with director's commentary from David Fincher and more!
We heard the rumor earlier this month, but it's official: Rosamund Pike has officially joined David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel 'Gone Girl.' The 'Jack Reacher' and 'The World's End' actress beat out seemingly every leading lady in Hollywood and, if Fincher brings his usual game, it may be the role that shoots her to the top of the A-list.
