"Are those Bagel Bites?!!"
Columbia is eager to work with David Fincher again after seeing him work on The Social Network. Variety is reporting that he’s attached to re-up with the studio for Pawn Sacrifice, a movie about chess nerd Bobby Fischer’s 1972 match against Boris Spassky. That sounds exciting, huh? Well, more exciting than Ridley Scott’s Monopoly anyway.
But Variety is also reporting that Fincher has his eye on the US remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (which sounds more like a Fountains of Wayne song than it does a movie). Also note that Fincher may be involved with the 3D version of Heavy Metal as well as his previously reported HBO series. It’s doubtful that he’ll take on all these projects due to his demanding schedule. Same old story. You know how he is. I’m still waiting for him to clean out the damn rain gutters like he promised he was gonna do. (Variety)
