Fincher showing 'Zodiac' director's cut


NEW YORK -- Eight months after its theatrical release, David Fincher will present the director's cut of his thriller "Zodiac" at an event hosted by the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Fincher will make a rare appearance to discuss his work Nov. 19 at the Walter Reade Theater on New York. Although he's known for shooting an extensive amount of footage, the new cut of his film about the infamous Zodiac serial killer case runs only seven minutes longer than the 158-minute original.

FSLC associate director of programming Kent Jones will interview Fincher about his directing career onstage following the screening.

A bare-bones DVD of the original "Zodiac" theatrical release was issued in July. The director's cut will be given a two-disc release with bonus featurettes and documentaries about the film and real-life events that inspired it on Jan. 8.
