David Fincher Assumes Control of Mission: Impossible III

"Panic Room" helmer David Fincher is expected to direct "Mission: Impossible III," reports Variety. Fincher has yet to sign, but the article says his representatives are in final negotiations to take over the third installment of the "Mission" franchise. If he joins the project, "M:I3" promises to be a lot different than its predecessors given Fincher's unique directing style. Those unfamiliar with his work should see "Fight Club" and "Panic Room" for a taste of what's to come.

Much like the "Alien" films, the "Mission" series is a director's showcase. Brian DePalma ("Mission to Mars") and John Woo ("Face/Off") handled parts 1 and 2 respectively.
