David Fincher to exec produce 'House of Cards' for American television

Posted on

Director David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) will executive produce the adaptation of the acclaimed British mini-series House of Cards for financier Media Rights Capital. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news. The mini-series, and political novel before that, will be adapted into a one-hour television drama with Fincher at the helm, along with Button screenwriter  Eric Roth and Sam Raimi’s producing partner Josh Donen. The MRC/Fincher adaptation will be set in the U.S., and while it will follow an American politician, it will still delve into the same themes of the mini-series: political ambition, crisis, networking and blackmail.
