Se7en 4K Remaster David Fincher Confirms Its in the Works

What’s in the box?! The 30-year anniversary of David Fincher’s horror masterpiece Se7en is fast approaching, the film originally shocking audiences with its sadistic twist ending way back in 1995. In a chat with Variety this week, Fincher reveals that a 4K remaster is on the way!

Fincher tells the outlet, “We’re going back and doing it in 4K from the original negative and we overscan it, oversample it, doing all of the due diligence and there’s a lot of shit that needs to be fixed. Because there’s a lot of stuff that we now can add because of high dynamic range.”

He continues, “You know, streaming media is a very different thing than 35 mm motion picture negative in terms of what it can actually retain. So there are, you know, a lot of blown-out windows that we have to kind of go back and ghost in a little bit of cityscape out there.”

But don’t worry, Fincher won’t be changing anything about the movie for this fresh re-release. He tells Variety that he’s “fundamentally against the idea of changing what [the film] is,” referring to the infamous re-release of E.T. as a guiding light for what NOT to do. He notes, “I’m not gonna take all the guns out of people’s hands and replace them with flashlights.”

In the 1995 film, written by Andrew Kevin Walker, “Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his motives.”

Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Spacey star.

On a related note, David Fincher is re-teaming with Se7en writer Andrew Kevin Walker on The Killer, a brand new thriller that’s premiering on Netflix on November 10, 2023.

The upcoming movie will adapt Alexis Nolent‘s same-titled series of graphic novels, with Andrew Kevin Walker scripting and David Fincher directing.

In the thriller, “After a fateful near-miss an assassin battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal.”

Michael Fassbender, Charles Parnell, Arliss Howard, Sophie Charlotte and Tilda Swinton star.
