David Fincher's 'Strangers on a Train' Remake is on Hold

It may be a while before David Fincher's planned remake of "Strangers on a Train" leaves the station.

Announced in January, the new adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's 1950 novel turned Alfred Hitchcock classic is set to reunite Fincher with "Gone Girl" star Ben Affleck and writer Gillian Flynn. However, the trio's increasingly busy schedules mean we won't be seeing this collaboration anytime soon.

"We’re all so over-committed right now that we’ll see on that one," Flynn told Vulture at a party for the adaptation of her novel "Dark Places." She added that her calendar is booked for the next year.

The plan reportedly had been to shoot "Strangers" between Affleck's "Live by Night" and "Justice League," but Fincher and Flynn are busy with their HBO thriller "Utopia," with the author also teaming with Steve McQueen for "Widows."
