The Lookout: According to The Hollywood Reporter, director David Fincher is being eyed for a new project over at Dreamworks:

DreamWorks Pictures is looking to land David Fincher to direct the thriller "The Lookout." Talks are ongoing for the "Panic Room" helmer to board "Lookout," which has attracted such A-list talent as Sam Mendes, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio. The project centers on a young man who is rendered quasi-disabled by short-term memory loss in the wake of a car accident. He is then befriended by a local gangster who wants assistance in robbing a bank. The Scott Frank-penned project, developed at the studio for several years, is being produced by studio co-heads Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald along with Laurence Mark. Studio production executive Marc Haimes is overseeing. In other Fincher news, the director has turned his attention away from "Lords of Dogtown" at Columbia Pictures, sources said.
