This year marks the 20th anniversary of director David Fincher‘s (The Social Network) breakout film, Se7en. The thriller not only launched Fincher’s feature filmmaking career, but it also made Andrew Kevin Walker an in-demand writer. Walker’s followup, 8MM, made less of a cultural, critical, and box-office impact. Director Joel Schumacher (Tigerland) turned his hot spec script into a so-so thriller. Walker, personally, wouldn’t mind seeing a 8mm remake. Learn why after the jump.

Leitch has been set to direct The Coldest City, a Cold War spy thriller starring Charlize Theron.
