Zodiac vs Black Dahlia

It's the movie Fincher tried desperatly to make. Black Dahlia directed by Brian De Palma comes out on and the trailer has just been released. So I think it's time to compare the two serial killer flicks. I want your opinions! Comment on your decision by using the following criteria:

The Book, Director, Cast & Screenwriter
Keep it civil people! The real winner will be revealed when both films grace our cinemas in the upcoming months.

Ezra talks - exclusive update!

From our fave Zodiac star (Ezra Buzzington, check my earlier posts and interview with him), he writes:
"Heyo,Update. Did some reshoots. FYI. The character was changed up a bit. He wanted to add a LOT more testimonials from a lot more actors so I was brought back in to talk about Zodiac again. As usual, great to see David. He was in fine form and the crew was genuinely pleased to be all back together. Now my guy is a guy with a stoooooopid plan to catch Zodiac. And I was thrilled to make the whole crew, David and Mark Ruffalo totally break up on camera. He rules. Take care,Zra"
"Quick update. Just wanted to let you know that as David was cutting the film together he decided that he needed far more Zodiac witness testimonials than he's originally thought. So he wrote up some stuff specifically for me (and several others) to reshoot. Dude. Just saying. Fincher writing something with me in mind. Ok. Can totally die now. It was shot quickly (wow!) and managed to make David, the crew and Mark Ruffalo totally break up. Me so thrilled.Thought you might want to know.CUEzra B."
There you go guys, straight from the horses mouth. Don't worry about the release date. This movie will be a killer, seriously.

The Big Ass I'm Back Update!!

The release date (according to is January 19, 2007, though one of my readers has speculated that there might be a limited release Nov/Dec 2006 to qualify for the Oscars and then wide release Jan 19th 2007.
The first review of the test screenings are out and they are generally positive, keeping in mind the film is still a long way of being done. I personally love The Wire comparissons, I was addicted to that show!
Now on the name change - well like before it was a temporary change, I'm sure the movie will be temporarily named to The Cronichles and there will be fan out rage again only for it to return to being called the Zodiac.
A Robert Downey Jr. quote, one from this interview: "He's (Fincher) very tough on technique. If you're a technically-proficient actor, you're going to survive. If you're not, you're going to hate him. I love him!"
As for other Fincher news, as reported before here he is set to creat a FX show with the writer of M*A*S*H*. LOL! Sounds fun. Read about it here.
Well that's it for the update, not much has changed since my break, but as we get closer to the release date and the trailer there will be much more so stay tuned! Thanks for your support and for sticking with the site!
