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.
