Fincher has been known for a large number of blockbusters and cult movies such as Fight Club and Se7en, although there were problems with the way the marketing for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was handled, which led to the studio’s distrust.
This could be another bump in the road for a movie that is already a long way off. News has been sparse on the film, but it is awaited as the answer to the Asthon Kutcher featured Jobs movie that was already released to less than stellar reviews.
