David Fincher

David Fincher fans may want to stop waiting for his Cleopatra film, starring Angelina Jolie, to start filming, because he will never get around to directing it. Vulture is reporting that talks between Fincher and Sony Pictures have broken down, and Fincher has now taken himself out of the director’s spot. The studio does however have a couple of candidates in mind that could replace Fincher.

Among those Sony is considering is Academy Award-winning Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain). However, the report says that no official offer has been made nor has anyone entered negotiations.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Blu-ray DVDThe Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Directed by David Fincher
Blu-ray Edition
Starring Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release Date: May 5, 2009

A wonderfully witty and magical tale coming from a 1921 F. Scott Fitzgerald short story is what caught the eye of director David Fincher. That this odd fable can still be able to gather up the natural resources that it takes to create an emotional love story that harkens back to the earlier style cinema romances is a head scratching miracle. Fincher’s previous work has always been spread across the table, working with films that can’t be classified within a certain genre: Fight Club and Seven. His films specialize in making the brain feel numb, helpless, and absorbed; all in which were in top form with his last film, Zodiac. With The Curious Case of Benjamin Button he wants to see life from an entirely different perspective than that of what previous films have depicted and in a different way as he shot the film digitally giving the film a bitterness and isolated feel. In doing so the result is that of a perspective that we can’t even begin to fathom, let alone appreciate.

We can’t appreciate moments in the film because our central character doesn’t fully appreciate them. His name is Benjamin (Brad Pitt) and he was born in 1919 as little as an infant but as old as an 80-year-old man. He lives life backwards as time goes by, decreasing in age while his looks become younger. All the while his brain tries to function what exactly is going on.
