Morgan Freeman's production company, Revelations Entertainment, have been talking about making an adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's novel Rendezvous with Rama for the better part of a decade. And even though I haven't actually read Clarke's novel, I've been desperately waiting to see that movie for one reason: David Fincher was always attached to direct.
