David Fincher’s new project?

As many would know David Fincher’s most recent project ‘The Social Network’ is extremely well regarded. it is now rumoured that his next project may be an adaptation of the novel ‘Panic Attack’ written by Jason Starr. Published in late 2009, the novel ‘Panic Attack’ is a suspenseful thriller following the emotional struggles of a family after a home invasion resulting in a death, and the creation of a new relationship for a family member which doesn’t seem quite right.

The book has been released to critical praise, Jason Starr is the author of various novels and comic books, including the graphic novel ‘The Chill’ and an issue of the Marvel Punisher Max series. Starr’s novels ‘Tough Luck’ and ‘Twisted City’ have both received ‘best paperback original’ awards.

It is being reported that David Fincher’s new production company has optioned ‘Panic Attack’, though whether this means Fincher is considering directing the film is another issue as with no less than four films currently in either pre-production or post-production he’s certainly keeping himself occupied.

The home invasion aspect of the plot synopsis to ‘Panic Attack’ triggers a reminder of Fincher’s 2002 film starring Jodie Foster ‘Panic Room’, though given the nature of the different character dynamics, and the reference to ongoing relationship dynamics no doubt this would be a very different film.

Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted as more news breaks on David Fincher’s upcoming project.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
