Why David Fincher Is Reluctant To Hop On A Star Wars Flick

Why David Fincher Is Reluctant To Hop On A Star Wars Flick”

The biggest complaint audiences have about the new Star Wars movies is that they stray too closely to previous franchise entries, that they're all homage and fan service and not enough self-creation.

"I talked to Kathleen Kennedy about it, and you know, it's a work in gold very hard". I don't know what's worse: being George Lucas on the set of the first one where everyone's going, "Alderaan? What the hell is this?" What the hell is this?' Where everyone's making fun, but I can't imagine the kind of intestinal fortitude one has to have following up the success of these last two.

The result of this is that you're locked into the behaviour of the character and "you really feel it when someone moves around the space that they're in". For the first, you have to endure the abuse of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, and for the new, you must raise a billion or a billion and a half, it is a different kind of pressure.

I was surprised as anybody when it was officially revealed that David Fincher will actually be directing the sequel to World War Z.

"I've been working for about a year now with Dennis Kelly on World War Z", Fincher says. And Fincher further explained that "we're hoping to get a piece of material that's a reason to make a movie, not an excuse to make a movie". It's unclear if he was ever approached to direct Star Wars: The Last Jedi or the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX, which sees J.J. Abrams returning to the director's chair, after very successfully helming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It's great to see that Fincher doesn't want to just make a sequel for the sake of making a sequel, something which studio execs often fail to understand, but it also still leaves him open to not directing the sequel at all if he can't see a way forward for him to work with.

It sounds like the film is still in its early development stages, and who knows how long that would take? As for the never-made HBO show he mentions, that would be Utopia.

Now the iconic director of Fight Club and Gone Girl has revealed why he turned down such an opportunity.

As we hear more, we'll keep you posted. In filmmaking terms, you're gonna have the same amount of drivers, you're gonna have the same amount of accountants, you're gonna have the same amount of costumers, you're gonna have the same amount of stunt people.

Mindhunter is now streaming on Netflix.
