After the production turmoil associated with his directorial debut Alien 3 (1992), American moviemaker David Fincher had given up on the idea of a career in Hollywood; his attitude changed when he received a script composed by an employee of Tower Records in Los Angeles. “I didn’t like my time in New York, but it’s true that if I hadn’t lived there I wouldn’t have written Se7en ,” revealed Andrew Kevin Walker (Sleepy Hollow) who, despite being told by the assistant to writer-director David Koepp (Ghost Town) that unsolicited screenplays were not accepted, pitched his idea about a serial killer who commits his murders according to the seven deadly sins.

Mario's name has appeared on the cover of hundreds of games. His brother, Luigi, has even stepped into the spotlight with his own title, "Luigi's Mansion." Even Mario's fattest foe, Wario, has two separate series that bear his name, the long running "WarioWare" mini-game collections, and the under-appreciated "Wario Land" games.
