Spacey reunites with Fincher on ‘Cards’

'Social Network' pair team for pilot

Kevin Spacey has been attached to star in “House of Cards,” the U.S. series adaptation of the Brit miniseries that will be exec produced by David Fincher.

Financed by Media Rights Capital, “Cards” will also be exec produced by Spacey and his Trigger Street Prods. partner Dana Brunetti.

The pairing of Spacey and Fincher comes immediately after the two collaborated on “The Social Network,” which was helmed by Fincher and exec produced by Spacey.

The U.S. adaptation will be a one-hour TV drama pilot that examines political blackmail amid a handful of crisis in the nation’s capital. The 1990 BBC miniseries starred Ian Richardson, Susannah Harker and Miles Anderson. Writer Andrew Davies won an Emmy.

Pilot, directed by Fincher, was written by Beau Willimon. No networks are currently attached, though Brunetti said there has been interest from around the dial.

“We’ve been talking about the show for a while, and we liked the idea for Kevin to star,” Brunetti told Variety. “It was a great show on BBC and we’re extremely excited to bring the story to Washington. … We’re looking forward to be going back into television and this is something that people could love Kevin in.”
