David Fincher to "Reincarnate" Peter Proud

10 November 2009 12:55 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

After directing his next film, The Social Network, Academy Award-nominated director David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) will reunite with screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker for the first time since the two paired on Seven in 1995. According to THR, Fincher is attached to direct a remake of the 1975 movie The Reincarnation of Peter Proud, which Walker will adapt from the book of the same name by Max Ehrlich.

The original film script, also written by Ehrlich, told the story of Peter Proud, a college professor who started investigating his dreams when he came to the realization that they were actually images from his own past life experiences. Part of the popular supernatural thriller movie trend of the mid-70s, Peter Proud was criticized for a subplot involving incest. Fincher and Walker are expected to stay true to the novel, but update it for a modern audience.

David Fincher And 'Se7en' Screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker Re-Team For 'Peter Proud' Adaptation

9 November 2009 1:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Fifteen years after working together on "Se7en," director David Fincher and screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker are reuniting for a new adaptation of Max Ehrlich's novel "The Reincarnation of Peter Proud," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The book was previously made into a 1975 movie by Ehrlich, who adapted his own work, and J. Lee Thompson, best known for helming the original "Cape Fear."

As with many films dealing with reincarnation, the plot is pretty ridiculous even if you believe in the concept. A college professor has nightmares involving a murder, which he eventually realizes was his own, from a previous life. And in the process of discovery, he unknowingly becomes romantically involved with his (past incarnation's) daughter.

Despite the silly and scandalous storyline, Ehrlich's book could lend itself to an interesting, Hitchcockian sort of psychological thriller. Unfortunately, Thompson's original film is apparently not good for much more than seeing a »

'Seven' Duo Reunite for Supernatural 'Reincarnation' Thriller

9 November 2009 11:31 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Hollywood Reporter reports David Fincher is now attached to direct the adaptation of Max Ehrlich's novel "The Reincarnation of Peter Proud" for Columbia Pictures with his Seven screenwriter, Andrew Kevin Walker, aboard to pen the screenplay.

The story 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.

The THR article says the supernatural thriller drew heat for a subplot involving incest, but the director and writer will be heading back to the novel as the source material and will contemporize the story.

"The Reincarnation of Peter Proud" has already seen the bigscreen once when Ehrlich penned the adaptation of his own work and J. Lee Thompson directed »

‘Se7en’ Writer and Director Reunite For ‘Peter Proud’

9 November 2009 10:53 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Back in 1995, director David Fincher and screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker (The Wolfman) collaborated on what is now touted as a “crime classic” and “a blueprint for modern serial killer movies.” That movie was Se7en, and I totally agree with all the praise that’s been heaped upon it (it recently featured in our “Horror Plus” series).

Now, 14 years later, Fincher and Walker are going to be collaborating once more, this time on an adaptation of the novel The Reincarnation of Peter Proud for Columbia. THR’s Heat Vision Blog reports the news of their involvement, along with producer Michael De Luca (Blade, Ghost Rider). The author of the book, Max Ehrlich, adapted it into a movie in 1975 of the same name, so I guess in a way this movie is a remake by Fincher (there’s that “remake or new adaptation” question again). According to THR:

Columbia now set for Reincarnation reincarnation

9 November 2009 9:51 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog, Columbia Pictures is now behind the David Fincher-directed remake of 1975’s The Reincarnation Of Peter Proud. Fincher had previously been working on the project for Paramount, where it had been in development for almost a decade.

The Reincarnation update reunites Fincher with SE7EN scripter Andrew Kevin Walker as well as Michael De Luca, who was president of production at New Line at the time of that serial-killer hit and will produce the new film with Alison Rosenzweig. The original movie, directed by J. Lee Thompson and scripted by Max Ehrlich from his novel, stars Michael Sarrazin and Margot Kidder in the tale of a man who is plagued by nightmares that turn out to be visions of a past life, and sets out to uncover their source. While the redux’s setting will be modernized, Fincher and Walker, who also co-scripted the upcoming Wolfman remake, »

9 November 2009 9:28 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Sure, David Fincher is currently working on the much talked about Facebook origin story The Social Network. But he's also working on several other things. For one, THR's Heat Vision is reporting that the director of Se7en is reteaming with screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker for an adaptation of Max Ehrlich's novel The Reincarnation of Peter Proud.

David Fincher Explores The Reincarnation of Peter Proud

9 November 2009 9:03 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Director David Fincher and his former “Seven” writer Andrew Kevin Walker (Really? Two first names? That’s just greedy) will be remaking the 1975 supernatural thriller “The Reincarnation of Peter Proud” by Max Ehrlich, who wrote the novel and the movie adaptation for director J. Lee Thompson. The film didn’t set the world on fire, though apparently it did stir up a bit of controversy for including a subplot that involved incest. The story follows college professor Peter Proud, 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 for some answers. With his girlfriend in tow, our hero discovers a woman and her daughter may be keys to unlocking his past life, though perhaps he should just have left it all alone.

Fincher Reunites The Se7en Team To Reincarnate Peter Proud

9 November 2009 8:57 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The writer/director tag team behind 1995's thriller masterpiece Se7en are getting back in the ring to tackle The Reincarnation of Peter Proud based on the novel of the same name. Seasoned thriller director David Fincher will be at the helm with Andrew Kevin Walker (who also wrote one of my favorites, Brainscan) at the quill and ink. The novelized Peter Proud was written in 1973 by Max Ehrlich who at the same time adapted his story into a screenplay to be later directed by J. Lee Thompson. According to THR, Proud is about a college professor who starts seeing progressively more terrifying visions of what he discovers to be a past life. When he reconnects with people who were a part of the life he once lived, he realizes he may be in more danger than he had planned on. Tossed into the mix is a weird subplot involving »

David Fincher to make Peter Proud

9 November 2009 7:44 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

David Fincher announced today that his next project after the Aaron Sorkin scripted Facebook movie The Social Network will be an adaptation of the Max Ehrlich novel The Reincarnation of Peter Proud. Better still he’ll be teaming up with Seven scribe Andrew Kevin Walker and producer Michael De Luca.

It’s been fourteen years since Seven catapulted the dark visions and tight direction of Fincher to an ebullient audience and to have Fincher and his team concentrating on a supernatural thriller is an awesome prospect.

Heat Vision at THR have this synopsis:

“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.

The 'Se7en' Crew Reunites to Get 'Proud'

9 November 2009 6:45 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Se7en... I'll never forget the first time I watched it, nestled with friends into the old seats at Gettysburg's Majestic Theater, all of us enamored, shocked, chilled, and buzzed on the thrill of the film IMDb ranks as #27 out of the Top 250 Films. It's one of those movies that elicits glazed eyes of fandom at its mention. But could the magic be brought to life again?

The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog reports that Se7en alums David Fincher, Andrew Kevin Walker, and Michael De Luca are re-teaming to make a new adaptation of Max Ehrlich's The Reincarnation of Peter Proud for Columbia Pictures. Fincher is, of course, attached to direct, and Walker will pen the script. (The book was originally adapted by Ehrlich himself for the film back in 1975.) The story focuses on a college prof who becomes plagued by recurring dreams and nightmares that he realizes are memories of a past life. »

David Fincher Reuniting with Writer of Seven for The Reincarnation of Peter Proud Remake

9 November 2009 6:30 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

I know a lot of people are still unsure about the fact that David Fincher's next project is a movie about Facebook [1], but if that's not your cup of tea, his follow-up project should put you at ease. For his next movie, it looks like Fincher will be bringing back together the same team that worked on his 1995 thriller Se7en starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, in order to remake the 1975 film The Reincarnation of Peter Proud. According to Heat Vision [2], screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker will adapt the Max Ehrlich novel on which the movie was based, while Fincher will produce along with former New Line president of production Michael De Luca. The story centers on a college professor who begins to have visions of a previous life, and finds himself drawn to a woman and her daughter who are seemingly connected to his past.

SE7EN Team to Take on Peter Proud

9 November 2009 5:10 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

David Fincher.  Andrew Kevin Walker.  Michael De Luca.  Even outside of SE7en, these three have accomplished so much in the film world.  In 1995, when these three came together, they created one of the most engaging and original thrillers, arguably, in the history of the art.  Now, 14 years later, they are coming back together.  Heat Vision is reporting that the team is stepping up to adapting Max Ehrlich’s novel The Reincarnation Of Peter Proud.

The story centers on a college professor who begins having visions and dreams about someone else’s life.  With his girlfriend accompanying him, he seeks out the source of these visions and comes across a woman and her daughter who may hold the key.  Not having seen the original 1975 film, which starred Michael Sarrazin and Margot Kidder, or read the novel, I cannot say where the story goes from there.  However, it is being billed as a supernatural thriller, »

'Se7en' Writer And Director Reteaming

9 November 2009 3:29 AM, PST | Screenrush | See recent Screenrush news »

David Fincher may have already had Alien 3 on his resumé when he directed the runaway hit Se7en but there is no doubt that the Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman starring thriller put him on the map, and so it will come as good news to those who have watched his career patchily develop that he is currently attached to direct an Andrew Kevin Walker adaptation of the 1975 Max Ehrlich novel (and film) The Reincarnation Of Peter Proud.

The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog has it that the adaptation will contemporize the supernatural-thriller about a college professor who starts to have visions and nightmares of a past life.

Fincher, who is just about to start shooting the Aaron Sorkin scripted The Social Network, will produce the remake alongside Se7en producer Michael De Luca reforming a powerful trinity that put together one of the best and most haunting films of the 90s. »

Reincarnation or Remake? Fincher-Helmed Peter Proud Redux on the Way

9 November 2009 2:12 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Here's one we didn't see coming. The Reincarnation of Peter Proud isn't exactly what you would call an A-list movie getting the remake treatment; however, there's some big time A-list talent behind this retelling.

According to THR's Heat Vision Blog the makers of Seven are teaming to reincarnate The Reincarnation of Peter Proud for Columbia.

David Fincher is attached to direct the new adaptation of the Max Ehrlich novel, which will be penned by Andrew Kevin Walker. Fincher will produce with Michael De Luca.

The film 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.

David Fincher Helming a 'Reincarnation of Peter Proud' Adaptation

8 November 2009 11:54 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

I'll be honest and admit that only within the past month did I have the exquisite joy of finally seeing David Fincher's film Se7en for the first time. It was just one of those embarrassing films that I hadn't ever taken the time to see. But having been blown away by it, my excitement is now off the charts as THR's Heat Vision reports that the trio (director, writer, producer) behind the twisted serial killer thriller is reuniting for an adaptation of Max Ehrlich's novel The Reincarnation of Peter Proud. Fincher will be directing from a screenplay by Andrew Kevin Walker (of Se7en as well) and producing with Michael De Luca again. Back in 1975 Ehrlich wrote an adaptation of his own book with J. Lee Thompson directing Michael Sarrazin and Margot Kidder in the film. The story centers on a college professor who begins having recurring dreams and nightmares and, »
