Just because Fincher likes him doesn't mean he has talent does it? He's never made a movie.
The original is a classic, and it's only 11 years old. The new one is going to suffer tremendously in comparison to the old one, even if it's well done. And I personally think the original was very deft in making the absolute most out of what was an awful book. I just can't imagine any other take on it being any good, but we'll see.
