David Fincher in talks for Facebook pic
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - David Fincher, the Oscar-nominated director of "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," is in early talks to log on to an untitled movie about the founders of the popular social networking site Facebook.
If a deal can be worked out, Fincher could be behind the camera by the end of the year. Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing") is writing the Columbia Pictures project
Fincher came close to directing the period Eliot Ness serial killer movie "Torso," but Paramount allowed that project's option to lapse. He still has the adaptation of the graphic novel "Black Hole" set up at that studio. His other credits include "Fight Club" and "Seven."
