Fincher’s Zodiac gains Robert Downey

DavidFincher.jpgDavid Fincher‘s Zodiac project has definitely been a long wait, but things seem to be moving in the right direction with news from Reuters through Yahoo of some castings:

Mark Ruffalo is in negotiations and Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey have signed on to “Seven” director David Fincher’s long-gestating thriller “Zodiac.”

Gyllenhaal will play Robert Graysmith, the journalist and author of the two books, “Zodiac” and “Zodiac Unmasked,” upon which the film is based. Downey will play fellow reporter Paul Avery, and Ruffalo would play the San Francisco homicide inspector in charge of the case.

Jake Gyllenhaal you will most likely know from Donnie Darko and The Day after Tomorrow. With him and Robert Downey Jr on board the talent is certainly looking good for the movie, and the material is perfect. I wonder how long we’re going to have to wait for some movement on this.

It’s fantastic to see Downey with some great roles on the go, I really hope we don’t see his talent wasted again.
