David Fincher reportedly nonetheless engaged on Squid Sport remake


David Fincher is reportedly nonetheless engaged on a remake of the wildly in style Squid Sport sequence for Netflix.

When Squid Sport completely exploded in reputation upon its launch in 2021, you might recall rumours that David Fincher was going to be engaged on a US model of the sequence. Properly, in accordance with The Playlist, not solely is the venture nonetheless in improvement, however Fincher could have even put the Chinatown prequel sequence on the again burner to give attention to Squid Sport.

The report states that Fincher has been “quietly working” on Squid Sport for the final two years and has even tapped Dennis Kelly (Utopia) to write down the venture. The report notes that it’s “unclear” the place the Squid Sport remake is at, however it could possibly be Fincher’s subsequent directing venture, contemplating how he pivoted away from Chinatown, which has all its episodes written.

We should always observe that Netflix’s Ted Sarandos did shot down the Squid Sport remake rumours earlier this yr. In spite of everything, with a second season of Squid Sport on the way in which, there’s not a fantastic motive for the streaming service to do an English-language remake, even with David Fincher on the helm. The primary season of the sequence nonetheless stands as Netflix’s hottest present of all time, with over 2.2 billion hours seen. If the remake does transfer ahead, I may see it taking the type of a companion sequence somewhat than a straight remake, with new characters coping with a US chapter of the sport.

Even when Fincher actually is engaged on a Squid Sport venture, there’s no assure it should ever see the sunshine of day because the director may rival Guillermo del Toro in terms of unmade initiatives.

Though a US model of Squid Sport is probably not a factor (but), Netflix did fill the hole between seasons with Squid Sport: The Problem, a actuality sequence which discovered 456 gamers competing for a US$4.56 million money prize by competing in challenges based mostly on these within the sequence… though with out all of the demise. The streaming service has already renewed the fact sequence for a second season. “There was no red light in our decision to greenlight season two of Squid Game: The Challenge, the most ambitious unscripted show we’ve premiered at Netflix,” stated Brandon Riegg, Netflix VP of Nonfiction Collection. “We’re so excited to proceed the franchise of Squid Sport with our crew in Korea, and producers at Studio Lambert and The Backyard for this epic competitors sequence.

In response to star Lee Jung-jae, the second season of Squid Sport will debut on Netflix this December. In relation to David Fincher, would you want him to deal with a Squid Sport remake or transfer on to one thing else?
