Fincher gets Proud

'75 PETER PROUD poster

If you want a David Fincher project to have more than a one-in-ten chance to see light of day, here might be the secret: couple him with a screenwriter who gave him one of his most kick-ass movies. Even if said writer hasn't done much these last 10 years.

Fincher is reuniting with his SE7EN scribe Andrew Kevin Walker to re-adapt the Max Erlich novel THE REINCARNATION OF PETER PROUD, rumored on the director's slate for years and previously filmed in '75 by J. Lee Thompson with Michael Sarrazin starring.

IF it ever happens, the film will follow a College professor in search of a past life he's been having nightmares about. Sounds a tad bit boring, but it's Fincher working with Walker, who also has THE WOLFMAN coming up. Plus a good casting choice could make this quite cool. Like...I dunno. Any thoughts?

Extra Tidbit: Walker's last film was SLEEPY HOLLOW in '99. And two of those awesome BMW mini movies in 2001. Where WAS he all this time?

Reincarnation... and incest

I had hoped to re-do this film someday. It's a twisty little fucker of a film, and as a kid, I watched it because it had "Lois Lane" in it. I distinctly recall that 'Peter' realizes he's dreaming about actual people, but doesn't know why... he's seeing this girl and their relationship is new. He meets her mom and finds something familiar about her - then realizes he's been reincarnated and the girl he's dating now is actually his daughter from his past life.

Its a Fincher film...

...So Brad Pitt, duh! But, in all seriousness, though it does sound like a good role for Pitt, it sounds even more like a Edward Norton role (Fight Club IS in my top five favorite movies...)

Pitt and Gyllenhaal are too good looking for this. Robert Downey Jr. or Ed Norton would work though, if you're looking thru actors Fincher's worked with before.
