Fincher, Eisner moving away from intended projects?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Two directors are walking away from anticipated film projects. One is expected, while the other is a surprise.

David Fincher, director of such masterpieces as “Zodiac,” “Fight Club” and “Se7en,” is taking his name off of a “Black Hole” remake. This should come as no surprise to those who know Fincher has agreed to direct an American version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and could easily stay with the franchise through the next two titles in the series. With “Girl” keeping him busy, Fincher will not be entering “The Black Hole,” so Pajiba.com reports that the producers will begin looking for a new director.

Also seeking another helmer is Spyglass Entertainment’s remake of David Cronenberg’s “The Brood.” Breck Eisner, who recently directed “The Crazies,” no longer is attached to direct, according to Pajiba.com.

In the same story, it’s reported that “The Hangover” screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are shopping their new script, called “21 and Over” to directors. Maybe they can pitch Eisner? The movie follows two college seniors who get their buddy wasted on his 21st birthday and embark on a journey through the University of Boulder before getting their friend to a med school exam the next morning.
