David Fincher talks Gone Girl, film career
FINCHER ON THE SOCIAL NETWORK
“When you read a script that good you just say: ‘Where do I go to surrender?’ It was just great. I knew those guys. I started Propaganda with those guys. I knew what it was to go this is not cute, this is my fucking dream.
“I was given the script. It was under very strange Alienauspices in that we had a script that the studio was making. ‘You tell us who you want to put in it… You let us know but we want to get started in September.’ And that’s what we did.
“Andrew Garfield wanted to play Mark Zuckerberg. He came to read under the auspices of playing Mark Zuckerberg. He was good and gave a good reading. He’s a talented dude.
“Then Jesse Eisenberg sent his audition tape and I grabbed Aaron, brought him over to computer, hit play and he said: ‘Oh my god, he does me better than me.’ So it had to be Jesse.
“I called Andrew over, we sat in my office and I said: ‘I can’t offer you Mark Zuckerberg but I’d love if you’d come to readthrough and read for Eduardo. You as an actor build an umbilicus to the audience. You create an emotional attatchment. That’s your gift. I need that for Eduardo. And if you come and read through I think you’ll see what I’m doing. No strings attached.’
“He came, he read, we finished, walked to parking lot and he said: ‘I get it. This guy is amazing.’”

If you’re ever really going to write and direct movies and get your own movies made, you have to be, you know, a hustler. You got to be kind of obsessively motivated. School’s not going to teach you that or give you those skills. You just kind of have to do it.
