It has been a busy 24 hours for anyone looking to keep up with what's going on with David Fincher. His "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" at Disney has some new life, possibly with Brad Pitt starring, he's signed an output deal with HBO and if that isn't enough, his trailer for "Halo 4" is now here.

Of all the success HBO has had in recent years, particularly by drawing Hollywood stars and auteurs into their fold, one could arguably trace their new network dominance back to 2001's "Band Of Brothers." The acclaimed ten-part, eleven-hour miniseries from producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks picked up six Emmys, a Golden Globe, a Peabody and many more honors, and was a big audience draw in addition to being a massive critical success. It spawned a side-series, "The Pacific," and overall continues to be one of HBO's crown jewels. So is it any surprise they want more?

We're almost a full year from when "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" hit theaters, and we're still no closer to figuring out what David Fincher's next feature film will be. Of course, not that he's been sitting around idle -- he has spent the bulk of 2012 producing and directing "House Of Cards," the Netflix and Media Rights Capital series that will hit the streaming service next year. And while "The Girl Who Played With Fire" won't be coming anytime before 2014, with Fincher saying in August he's "trying to figure [it] out," a past collaborator could kickstart a project that's been brewing for a while.

While the status of the next "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" movie remains unknown, there is still plenty coming forth from director David Fincher. Most notably is "House Of Cards," with all thirteen episodes of the series landing on Netflix on February 1st. And now it looks like he'll bring his razzle dazzle back to the commerical world where he cut his teeth for one of the most anticipated games of the fall.

After a flurry of activity, with four films in five years (having taken the previous fifteen years to make his first five movies) between 2007's "Zodiac" and 2011's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," David Fincher hasn't been in a rush to pick his next movie. There's a number of possibilities in the mix -- among them the 'Dragon Tattoo' sequel "The Girl Who Played With Fire," and the long-gestating "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" -- but none have, publicly at least, made great strides towards production, so we're unlikely to see a new film from the director until the middle of 2014 at the earliest.

5 Things You Might Not Know About David Fincher’s Criterion Approved 'The Game'

It seems unfair that David Fincher’s 1997 directorial outing “The Game” is often in the back of cinephile’s minds when they think of the director’s magnificent oeuvre. It is understandable in some ways, seeming as it’s sandwiched between two monumental directorial efforts into the pantheon of cult movies with Fincher’s own “Se7en” coming in 1995 and “Fight Club” hitting in 1999, but many fans of the notoriously finicky filmmakers would probably rank it close to or at the very top of their lists of the director’s best work. While it certainly isn’t as abrasive a film as “Se7en” or “Fight Club,” it’s just as memorable for showcasing the benefits of David Fincher’s acute attention to detail that would greatly benefit the many twists and turns of the film’s script.

With Sony confirming last week that "The Girl Who Played With Fire" would not be hitting screens in 2013 (hardly a shock considering no casting or greenlight or any other movement had happened on "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" followup), speculation brewed as to whether or not David Fincher would return. While "The Social Network" was pretty much smooth sailing, his relationship with Sony grew fractious during 'Dragon Tattoo,' with heads butting from the start over casting and more bumps along the way. "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" was expected to be his next film, but we'd wager Disney might be re-considering the expensive 3D and CGI-heavy movie in the wake of the belly flop "John Carter," and particularly with "The Lone Ranger" reportedly already going over budget. Whatever might be going on behind the scenes, it seems Fincher still has Lisbeth Salander on the brain.

So, is David Fincher's relationship with Sony in trouble, or does Scott Rudin simply want to get moving on "Cleopatra" starring Angelina Jolie? It remains to be seen where the truth lies, but one thing is certain: David Fincher won't be involved with the film.

Wondering what's going on with the followup to Sony's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," the adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling novel ($30 million copies sold worldwide) that grossed $232 million worldwide, but only $102 million domestically in its 2011 iteration as directed by David Fincher?

For cinephiles at least, one of the most anticipated releases of the summer is the Keanu Reeves-produced documentary “Side By Side,” not only for its essential film vs. digital debate, but even more for the incredible behind-the-scenes talent lined up for interviews. Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, and Christopher Nolan all make appearances in the film, and now Tribeca Films have released the latest in their series of outtakes, this time featuring the inimitable director of “Avatar” and “Titanic.”
