“I don’t watch my movies. (…) I probably watch it once in the theatre with an audience and then go home and throw up repeatedly.”
“I’m not promoting a brand. I’m just making a movie. I look at a story from the standpoint of, ‘What haven’t I done here?’ And I know why they brought me to the [Dragon Tattoo] material. They’re like, ‘Let’s get the pervert! This is perverted enough for the pervert!’”

“My younger sister was probably 10 or 11 years old at the time, and she had this collection of these anatomically correct (dolls)… They looked like seven-month-old or eight-month-old babies… They didn’t look particularly doll-like. They were more of a re-creation of an actual human baby.
She had, like, five or six of them, and we thought, ‘She’s not going to miss a few’. So we would take them and pack them with hamburger and ketchup and throw them into the freeway… for general amusement.”

“I love Fight Club and I think Se7en is an amazing film. I think Fincher is one of the few directors in the world that can do something really good with it.”

“I wrote the necrophelia line just because I like to get the word necrophelia into PG13 movies whenever possible.”
David Fincher (The Social Network Commentary)
If I make a hundred more movies with David, it won’t be enough. He makes your script a better screenplay and in the process makes you a better writer. He gets the very best from actors and “good enough” is never good enough. And he’s a magician in post, making scenes of typing (and sometimes just talking about typing) look like bank robberies.
I hope my obituary isn’t written for a long time but when it is, I hope the first line is, “He worked with David Fincher.””
“It’s as adult as you can possibly make it. This is adult drama. I grew up, as we (expletive) all did, watching The Godfather and that, movies that were made for adults. And this is a $100 million R-rated movie. Nobody makes those anymore. And [director David] Fincher, he’s not holding back. They’ve given him free reign. He showed me some scenes recently, and my hand was over my mouth, going, Are you (expletive) serious?”
IT’S NOT A FUCKING REMAKE, YOU IDIOTS
