David Fincher to Produce Thriller IOU; Jacob Aaron Estes Will Direct

     June 25, 2012


Filmmaker David Fincher rarely lends his name to projects that he isn’t directing, so when he actually does decide to take a producing credit on a film it’s not to be taken lightly.  Heat Vision reports that Fincher has committed to produce Mean Creek writer/director Jacob Aaron Estes’ thriller IOU.  Plot details on the project are firmly under wraps, but Michael Arlen Ross (Turistas) wrote the script and Estes will be directing.  Fincher actually has a connection to the project as Media Rights Capital is producing both IOU and Fincher’s upcoming Netflix series House of Cards, for which he directed the pilot and serves as executive producer.

Estes wrote and directed last year’s Sundance pic The Details, and he’s currently writing the script for Matt Reeves’ Frankenstein thriller This Dark Endeavor.  The only other feature films for which Fincher has served as a producer are 2005’s Lords of Dogtown and, strangely, the 2006 romantic comedy Love and Other Disasters.  He’s currently busy with House of Cards, but hopefully his next directorial feature will be announced soon.  Candidates for Fincher’s next film include 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the period biopic Cleopatra, and the less likely Dragon Tattoo sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire.
