Personal Quote:

[about the personality traits that helps in being a director] Belligerence certainly helps. And there's a requisite paranoia. There's fear--fear of failure--and an overwhelming urge to be liked. See more »

Trivia:

Fincher has stated that the shock twist ending in the script for Se7en (1995) was not intended for him to read, and was sent by accident. He insisted on the twist ending, but the studio preferred a happier ending. The support of Brad Pitt led the studio to relent. Fincher also stated Pitt was instrumental in securing Kevin Spacey's involvement in the film. See more »
