Now thanks to AFF's On Story, we get to watch a condensed version of our conversation, highlighting Walker's research process, character development, and fight to keep what's in the box in the film. You can watch the full video below. David Fincher loves to collaborate with his writers David Fincher is certainly a visionary director, and rightfully gets a ton of credit for making material specifically his own. According to Walker, Fincher is also an excellent collaborator with his writers. Walker points out how specific Fincher's notes are for particular scenes, always bringing his point of view to bear, but working together with the writer to make the best possible version of the story for the film. Walker's script had gone through many iterations in development before Fincher was approached, and he accidentally received the earliest draft of the script including the famous "what's in the box" ending. Luckily for Walker, that's the version Fincher wanted to shoot.
Seven, written by Andrew Kevin Walker and directed by David Fincher , is one of the great thrillers of the s, a decade with several exceptional thrillers. He was hired to replace the first director on the film, already in production, so he never got the chance to fully develop the script and give the film his stamp. Seven is the film that really put Fincher on the map as one of our great cinematic stylists, and he would follow it up with a string of powerful films over the years, including Fight Club , The Social Network and the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
This has never been so true as with Seven. A cat-and-mouse game between a twisted serial killer and two cops, one young and brash and the other close to retirement…is not exactly a revelatory set of dramatic elements.
It was Fincher who made the location a nameless, hopelessly bleak, always rainy city, gave it tons of Noir details the high contrast lighting, hard-boiled clothing and period cars all reflect an older era infused with an industrial punk aesthetic, and hired a visual effects team to create the striking opening titles and end credits sequence.
According to this bit of IMdb trivia, it was Kevin Spacey who requested to have his name removed from the poster and press packet for the film, so as to surprise the audience when John Doe finally appears onscreen. Spacey was not yet a full-fledged movie star, as his film The Usual Suspects another great 90s crime film , had only opened one month prior to Seven, so his cameo was exciting for audiences who recognized him from his various character roles.
The pacing of the film is alternately fast and slow; with seven crime scenes to get through, the pace must be kept up, but, one notices that there are several long scenes in the film. The filmmakers draw out many moments to deftly escalate tension and to create the mood of dread and hopelessness that is so key to the theme of the story. Interestingly, Fincher often chooses to wait until the end of a scene to reveal a key detail, so we, the audience, feel like we are discovering these clues along with the protagonists.
