Here's What David Fincher Is Probably Doing Next


Following rumors that David Fincher may be in line to direct a new Star War, Variety is now ready to confirm we were probably dumb to think that was real.

Instead, Fincher is more likely just doing another based-on-a-novel thriller, this one coming from Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea are producing the adaptation, and while an offer hasn't yet gone out to Fincher, he's said to be in talks with Fox to direct the tale of a woman who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary. THE WOOD ANNIVERSARY.

It's not year clear if Witherspoon would be the one going missing and ruining the Red Lobster reservation, nor is it certain this would be Fincher's next project: Though Disney's three-month "hold" on the director's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea remake is drawing to a close, he's reportedly still waiting on the studio's final decision on whether or not they'll fund it. Meanwhile, Witherspoon is this month beginning shooting on her adaptation of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, so Fincher's got some time to decide, as that shouldn't be done until early March, 1993.
