There has been a lot of talk about the Star Wars property since Lucas sold it to Disney, and on a few occasions David Fincher has been mentioned as a potential director. Now there's some talk that he would be open to that.
Yeah, the guy who did Fight Club and Se7en, Zodiac and The Social Network. Now, he's a very talented director, and he has some interesting ties to the material. He apparently cut his teeth working with Lucas back in the Return of the Jedi and Temple of Doom days, so there's some history there, but it still seems like an odd choice to me. I would be very intrigued to see how he would approach such a project, but I just can't see it being a cozy fit.
It will be very interesting to see how this plays out.
