I look forward to a new David Fincher movie like little children look forward to Christmas morning, so this recent report out of JoBlo’s has me just a little disappointed. Seems that Fincher’s "Zodiac," which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., and Mark Ruffalo, has been bumped back to early 2007.
Says JB: "David Fincher’s serial killer suspense flick ZODIAC has been pushed back from a fall date later this year to January 2007. What gives? Isn’t January where bad movies go to die? … Paramount didn’t offer up an explanation to the move but since it never had a solid release date, they could easily just say there was no delay as its release was never set…"
So it’s not really a delay, but more of a release date announcement. Either way, based on Fincher’s previous work ("Alien 3," "Seven," "The Game," "Fight Club," and "Panic Room"), I can’t wait to see the based-on-actual events crime thriller.
