Fincher to Adapt BBC’s “House of Cards”

Many filmmakers have done it before, now, David Fincher is going to television.  The Hollywood Reporter says Fincher will be adapting the BBC’s mini-series “House of Cards,” as a one-hour drama.  The original series was aired in the 1990s and starred Ian Richardson.

“House of Cards,” was about a politician scheming and trying to take over for outgoing Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.  The new series will be transplanted to the US, but will still be about a blackmailing politician.

You may recall that “House of Cards,” is not the first BBC miniseries to be adapted for a US market.  The Russell Crowe/Ben Affleck movie “State of Play,” as well as Mel Gibson’s “Edge of Darkness” both started out as shows across the pond.
