The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
[#17 in 100 Films in a Year 2011]
The first of two new films to close out my David Fincher Week. I don't quite know why it's taken me so long to get round to this one, but it certainly has been a (relatively) long time -- the UK theatrical release was two years ago this week!

Will Shane Black Direct Iron Man 3? by Borys Kit & Pamela McClintock
(from Heat Vision at The Hollywood Reporter)
I didn't even know Jon Favreau had stepped down.

He also wrote Lethal Weapon, but that was 24 years ago so let's not hold it against him.
