David Fincher on the set of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"
David Fincher, whose last big screen project was "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" remake with Rooney Mara, is eyeing his next endeavor--which may also be an adaptation of another popular book. "Gone Girl," written by Gilian Flynn, has sold over two million copies and is being prepped for a big screen debut by Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea's Pacific Standard and Leslie Dixon. Fincher is currently in talks to direct for Fox, and Witherspoon may or may not be planning on starring. "Gone Girl" is a thriller centering on a woman who disappears just after her fifth wedding anniversary.

Fincher has kept busy directing "House of Cards" for Netflix; it debuts February 1. Check out the trailers here. He remains attached to Disney's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" as well as Sony's "Dragon Tattoo" sequel--currently awaiting the attention of screenwriter Steve Zaillian.
