Kevin Spacey and David Fincher head to the small screen for House of Cards

Kevin Spacey is on a roll news-wise. Yesterday he talked about those "Bond villain rumors" and now there's news of a new project.

The project in question re-teams Spacey with David Fincher. Both will be making the move to television for HOUSE OF CARDS. Fincher will direct the pilot, which is based on the book and British miniseries of the same name. Spacey will star and serve as executive producer. Here are the details on the series:

"The political-thriller novel House of Card, written by Michael Dobbs, former Conservative Party chief of staff, is set at the end of Margaret Thatcher's tenure as prime minister and follows a British politician with his eye on the top job. In 1990, it was adapted by the BBC as a miniseries written by Andrew Davies and starring Ian Richardson. It went on to win a BAFTA award for Richardson and an Emmy for Davies."

Fincher's adaptation is set in the U.S. and was written by playwright/screenwriter Beau Willimon (THE IDES OF MARCH). The series has not yet sought out any television networks.
