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.

Ever since Fincher was attached to direct Cleopatra, the road to production was going at a snail’s pace. Though there was development, it wasn’t fast enough. In fact, the last major development for Cleopatra was when screenwriter Eric Roth (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button) was brought in to pen the rewrites for the film back in November.

We may never know the real reason why Fincher will no longer direct the film, but from what he does have, we know that he a lot on his plate. The director is currently on hand to direct a remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Goon, as well as the Netflix series House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey.

This latest bit of news could have a direct affect on The Girl Who Played with Fire, the sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Although the principal stars are attached for three films, Fincher is not committed to direct. Though the film didn’t bomb at the box office, it just didn’t perform up to the studio’s expectations.

We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any new developments should they come up.

Who do you think should direct Cleopatra?
