“People continue to work on it and refine stuff, but it's hard for me because I'm in Sweden, so I can't really make many production meetings, but the attempt is to in January really go out and try and figure out a price that makes sense," he said.
"I don't know why you can spend $200 million (£130 million) on The Incredibles... or $130 million (£84 million) on Kung Fu Panda [but you can't spend] $50 million (£32 million) on The Goon."

Fincher has also been talking to Collider about the return of Captain Nemo. According to some sources, he has already met with 3D pioneer James Cameron to secure the use of his fancy cameras. Not much is known about the Disney production, and Fincher was cagey in his interview with the folks at Collider, saying that he’s “waiting for a draft.” Fans might be comforted to know that when the draft does arrive, it will come from Seven writer, Andrew Kevin Walker.
What do you think about this collaboration? Can Fincher, Walker, and Disney produce the most fascinating 3D adventure yet, or will this undersea caper end in briny tears?
When the curtains draw closed on a certain tattooed girl, and the last name climbs to the top of the big-screen, fans will have to look to smaller screens to find Fincher’s next directorial credit - the pilot for upcoming political series House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey.
The series is set for release through Netflix, which might cause some distress to fans in the UK, since the service isn’t available here...yet. A press release on the Netflix website reveals that a deal has been done with the BBC, and Netflix is set for its UK launch early in 2012.
