James Cameron may be out, but Scott Rudin’s
may have found itself a new director in the shape of David Fincher.
Power producer Rudin recently worked with Fincher on
The Social Network
and upcoming book adap
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
, so it would make sense for them to collaborate again on
The only bone of contention, though, could be scheduling, with
reporting that Fincher is anticipating filming
The Girl Who Played with Fire
next – his first sequel to one of his own movies.
He’s also attached to
20,000 Leagues Under The Sea
over at Disney.
Rudin has previously described this new
as “completely revisionist”, and a “much more grown up, sophisticated version” of the Egyptian queen’s life.
No word yet if Angelina Jolie is still in line to star, though we know she’s not officially signed on to the film.
