10 Amazing Unmade David Fincher Films

Sadly, Ei8ht is not among them...

David Fincher The Girl Who Played With Fire There's a good chance that, even if you consider yourself a pretty big fan of director David Fincher, there's a fair amount of his work you've never lied eyes on. Before he reached the cinematic heights of this year's Gone Girl and cultural landmarks like Se7en, Fight Club and The Social Network, Fincher worked primarily as a music video director. He worked with some pretty big names, too, with his video production company Propaganda Films seeing him rub shoulders with fellow future tians of cinema like Spike Jonze, Zack Snyder and Michael Bay, making clips for the likes of Madonna, Aerosmith and Michael Jackson. It was that music video work that got him his first feature gig, the underrated Alien 3 (Fincher's quoted as saying "No one hated it more than me; to this day, no one hates it more than me."). That experience was so off-putting it took three years for him to get back into the directing chair, which is when he made Se7en and finally set on the route to being one of the most interesting filmmakers working today. But he could've gone down a very different path. Alien 3 wasn't the first movie he was offered, nor Se7en the first comeback he considered. Then there are the sequels, remakes, and animated features the director has been attached to over the years. He's got a fairly spartan filmography, choosing to wait for the projects he really wants to work on. Which means there's also a bunch of stuff out there he never got around to finishing. Here are just ten of those potentially amazing unmade David Fincher films.
