World War Z 2

A sequel to World War Z has been in the works ever since the first film became a monster hit, earning over $540 million worldwide. However, in the five years since then, it’s had plenty of delays and has gone back and forth between being a project that David Fincher would return to direct. At one time Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona was even aboard the project, choosing to take on the zombie sequel instead of the dinosaur sequel, but we all know how that worked out.

Now we have word that World War Z 2 is still alive (or undead) and kicking, straight from producers Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. The two revealed that not only is David Fincher is still attached to direct once again, but Brad Pitt is also back, and production is now slated to begin next summer. Read More »

Three Great David Fincher Audio Commentaries

David Fincher audio commentaries

The start of a David Fincher commentary is kind of like the start of a David Fincher movie: you know you’re in store for something good. Sometimes after listening to hours upon hours of commentary tracks, I question how I spend my time, but listening to Fincher’s commentaries is always time well spent. He’s concise and candid, he’s as funny as his movies, and he’s a great storyteller. The co-founder of Propaganda Films is completely open about his choices and how a scene and film was put together, and never attempts to preserve some sense of mystery about his work.

Everything you’d want to know about one of Fincher’s movies can be learned in one of his commentary tracks, which are usually joined by other excellent and informative bonus features, including a highly reccomended Panic Room commentary featuring screenwriter William Goldman. Audio commentaries don’t get much better than Fincher’s, though, so if you’ve yet to listen to one of his, do yourself a favor and check one out.
