Assuming David Fincher survives the Herculean task of retelling the epic tale of Facebook in The Social Network, it seems that his next project will bring him back to familiar territory. We’ve learned that Fincher has signed on to adapt The Reincarnation of Peter Proud alongside screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker, who also wrote Fincher’s Seven. The novel by Max Ehrlich was already adapted back in 1975, with a screenplay written by Ehrlich himself. Fincher’s adaptation will use the novel as its source, while also modernizing the story.
