|Rooney Mara in W Magazine|
Early favourite for Best Director at February’s Oscars, David Fincher sits down with W Magazine’s Lynn Hirschberg and chats about his celebrated career in next month's Issue. Looking back at some of his more important Films, Fincher feels that The Social Network stands as a “Movie” in his books, not a “Film”. 2007’s Zodiac however was a real “Film” according to the Director in that "it was about murders that changed America. After the Zodiac killings in California, the Summer of Love was over. Suddenly, there was no more weed or pussy. People were hog-tied and died. No one died during the creation of Facebook. By my estimation, the person who made out the worst in the creation of Facebook still made more than 30 million dollars. And no one was killed.”. He might have a point there.
Although Fincher doesn’t get photographed, we do get a sneak peek at The Social Network Star Rooney Mara’s dark transformation as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which re-teams the Actress with Fincher. The Film is now in Post-Production.
