Jake on Graysmith

From a NZ website (bloody Kiwisi):
His next film is Zodiac, about a 1960s San Francisco serial killer. Gyllenhaal is playing Robert Graysmith, the San Francisco Chronicle ex-illustrator and author who obsessively investigates the killings. Gyllenhaal's starting to get a little forensic himself; he's been recently videotaping Graysmith. What's he like? " He's a bulldog and at the same time, full of an innocence I could never equate with a bulldog. He cares about doing the right thing in a world that seems so perverse, it seems impossible to do the right thing in. "I've noticed that playing a real person, you can interpret it how you wanna interpret it, but sometimes the personality is the key to making the story work."

Huge Fincher news!

Whoa I was blown away when i heard this. It appears that Fincher is set to direct Torso, a movie adapted from the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis and Marc Andreyko.
If this is true it seems that Benjamin Button (which was supposed to star father to be Brad Pitt has been put on hold) has been put on hold for no. Ehren Kreger (writer of both Ring movies) is set to script.

Quick synopsis - Based on Brian Bendis and Marc Andreyko's graphic novel, Torso tells the true story of Eliot Ness' career after cleaning up Chicago and putting away Al Capone. A national celebrity and idolized federal agent, Ness leaves the Windy City for Cleveland, where his career takes an unfortunate downturn. Though Ness swears to clean up Cleveland, he finds himself humbled by a serial killer responsible for the "torso murders."

I am so excited that Fincher is gonna work soon after Zodiac wraps up, no big break for him again. I'm also thrilled that the great Torso comic is turning into a movie. I suggest you check it out. Maybe Finch will pull out some Sin City style effects since the comic is done in black and white characters on top on real life photos. Below are some links.

Small tidbit of news

Is tidbit a word? From sound engineer Drew Kunin found here.

And, just to keep things interesting, he's currently working long hours on what he says "is technologically the most advanced film ever made."
It's David Fincher's "Zodiac," about the unsuccessful — and debilitating — efforts of a cop (Mark Ruffalo) and a newspaperman (Jake Gyllenhaal) to track down a serial killer who terrorized San Francisco in the '60s and '70s. "Zodiac" is being shot with a new digital system that Kunin says "looks great, amazing. This movie is one full step ahead of everyone else. No one else is doing this, but it's so clear to me that this is the future of the movies."
Because the technology is so new and because Fincher, who also made "Seven" and "Panic Room," is "extremely demanding of the people he works with," Kunin says, "This is hard work. The film with Altman was in many ways a love feast. We all felt so happy to be there, and Bob makes a very convivial atmosphere. But this feels more like hard work."
Fincher you task master show us a trailer!
