Like Fincher, David S. Goyer has gone on to have a superb and rewarding Hollywood profession, working with Christopher Nolan on The Darkish Knight Trilogy, penning cult classics like “The Crow: Metropolis of Angels” and “Demonic Toys,” and being one of many solely voices of cause behind the scenes of DC’s doomed arc of Henry Cavill Superman films (which he had a lot to say about on “Completely satisfied Unhappy Confused” — little or no of it good).
Goyer mirrored fondly on his transient time working with Fincher within the growth days of New Line Cinema within the early ’90s:
“I developed a draft with Fincher earlier than he had executed ‘Se7en.’ […] I bear in mind going to our producer’s workplace … There was this big convention desk. Fincher laid out 40 to 50 books of pictures and artwork with post-it notes inside them. He stated, ‘That is the film.'”
It is unclear whether or not or not Fincher was already in pre-production on “Se7en” on the time, however Fincher has revealed that he’d been conscious of the script for the movie floating round Hollywood for years by that time. In both case, Goyer’s recollection of Fincher aligns precisely with the exacting, complete mind of legend that makes his films shine:
“[Fincher] took us on a two-hour tour across the desk of the aesthetics of this scene, that character. […] It was such a totally fleshed-out visible pitch … I had by no means seen one thing like that earlier than. Lots of that pondering infused my additional revisions.”
Fincher would finally get replaced by Stephen Norrington, who turned “Blade” right into a modest field workplace hit with lengthy cultural legs. And Fincher, properly, we all know the way it turned out for him.
