Fincher Reincarnating The Reincarnation of Peter Proud


Reuniting with Seven writer

Director David Fincher and writer Andrew Kevin Walker are reteaming for the first time since Seven for The Reincarnation of Peter Proud, an update of the 1975 movie which starred Michael Sarrazin and Margot Kidder and was directed by J. Lee Thompson.

Based upon the Max Ehrlich novel, The Reincarnation of Peter Proud centers on a college professor who begins having recurring dreams and nightmares and, realizing they are images of a past life, decides to search out the source of the visions. With his girlfriend in tow, he discovers a woman and her grown-up daughter who are keys to his past life. According to the blog post, the supernatural thriller drew heat for a subplot involving incest.

Rather then remaking the ’75 film, this new version will be adapted from the original source material and contemporized. Fincher will produce the flick with Michael De Luca. Fincher’s set to helm The Social Network, the Aaron Sorkin-scripted film about the formation of Facebook next.
