Meanwhile, Oscar nominee Fincher ("The Social Network") has been developing "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo" at Disney, and is also still in the mix for Sony's "The Girl Who Played With Fire, " the sequel to his 2011 film "Dragon Tattoo."
He's also among the names rumored to be connected to a "Star Wars" feature sometime in the future. He got an early career break as a camera assistant on 1983's "Return of the Jedi."
Flynn also has two other film projects on her slate; "Dark Places" will star Amy Adams, while "Sharp Objects" was recently optioned by Alliance Films.
