    Give me 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea over this any day. My girlfriend listened to this on audio book in the car and I wanted to kill myself the entire time.

    Apparently the producers want Emily Blunt for the lead role. I hope it's true.

    The plot description is too vague to get me interested.

    Yeah, It's hard to gauge what the plot is (dark obviously). Otherwise, it sounds run of the mill.

    Come on, Fincher, give me another The Game, Seven, or Fight Club. I miss 90s Fincher.

    Yeah, I do miss his the Fincher of old: I still think he hasn't made a film as good as Fight Club. Not to say Social Network or Zodiac aren't good. They're great..but Fight Club to me was just groundbreaking stuff, along with Se7en and to a point, the underrated Game. The Game was innovative and compelling in its own right and I'm glad it got a Criterion DVD release recently.

    Guess he isn't directing the next Dragon Tattoo film. Shame.

    It's a bit disappointing that he'd direct a film with "Girl" in the title, and that it's not "The Girl Who Played With Fire".

    Ah well.

    It looks like if there is a female lead she'd only be there in flashbacks, unless the bulk of the story is the guy going over her story in his head.

    No she did not deserve her Oscar. Felicity Huffman did. Also, the fact that you said that she's only good when given the right material proves how bad she is. Good actors are good, even with crappy material (Ex: Gary Oldman in Red Riding Hood). I've never seen Witherspoon give a performance worthy of being called 'decent'.

    But wait... what does this mean for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea? Is he confirmed to be directing Gone Girl?

    Making a franshise is just waste of time and effort for a brilliant director like David Fincher. I rather have him doing original films than sequels. Dragon Tattoo was far from his best work anyway.
