David Fincher reports he's still "figuring out" The Girl Who Played With Fire

08.27.2012by: Ike Oden

If David Fincher’s name is attached to a property, I’m there without hesitation. Though the man’s films have experienced varying degrees of success with audiences, they’re always unique, bold, and more than a little disturbing. His THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO remake was no different. Unfortunately, the film underperformed at the box office (especially for an Award season darling), making the possibility for a sequel to the film decidedly hazy at best.

Now Fincher himself has reported he is still actively working on it, stating in an interview he’s “trying to figure out a sequel to Dragon Tattoo” concurrently with his work on the upcoming Netflix series HOUSE OF CARDS.

This wouldn’t be noteworthy news if it wasn’t for the fact it came from the man himself. Fincher is notorious for spreading himself relatively thin with developing projects. His 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA remake is slated to be his next film after falling out with CLEOPATRA. After months of mixed reports about the sequel's future as well as a recently announced production delays, news of Fincher's continued development bodes well for his return to the franchise.

Also, this gives me a good excuse to put Karen O’s “Immigrant Song” cover on in the background. I suggest you do the same with the video below.

Extra Tidbit: Rooney Mara really did a 360 from the ELM STREET remake into DRAGON TATTOO.

If Fincher isn't on board for the next chapter , either am I . This adaption was brilliantly executed , did a great deal at the Turnstiles , and Fincher's ' figuring out ' shows why he's such a talented film maker . God knows we've had enough adaptions where nobody involved understood the material .

Flop?

I honestly do not understand why the first film is considered a box office disappointment. It made a little over 100 mil domestically and over 2 hundred mil worldwide. With a budget of 90 mil, that ain't to shabby. What were they expecting Harry Potter numbers? Give me a break. Not bad for a 2hr+ film about rape and murder.

Really hope he does this, if he doesn't my interest in the film will drop significantly since his direction was one of the main factors the first film worked well.
