David Fincher Close to Producing Deal with Media Rights Capital

     September 15, 2010

David Fincher may soon be producing films under his own moniker.  Much like M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Night Chronicles” label (of which, the upcoming Devil is a part), the Academy Award-nominated director responsible for such films as Seven, Fight Club, Zodiac, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is reportedly close to signing what currently looks like a two-picture production deal with Media Rights Capital.  According to THR, negotiations are ongoing but all signs seem to indicate that the two parties are close to making the partnership official.

Another aspect of the potential deal that is currently unknown is what type of films Fincher’s label might produce.  While Shyamalan’s certainly have a supernatural tilt (in addition to Devil, a director for Reincarnate was just announced), one might expect Fincher to do something in the vein of crime sagas like Seven or Zodiac.  More likely the case is that Fincher would produce films in the vein of “pretty damn good.”  At the end of the day, regardless of genre, if Fincher puts his name on something there is a great chance I am going to check it out.  His latest film The Social Network is set to open October 1st.  In case you missed it, Steve loved the film and recently posted an e-mail interview with the filmmaker.
