If Limp Bizkit frontman-turned-director Fred Durst plans to roll into movie theaters, it looks like it won't be with the kings of skate culture.
"Seven" and "Fight Club" visionary David Fincher will take the directorial reigns of "The Lords of Dogtown," which profiles the dawn of skate life in '70s southern California, according to Hollywood trade publication Variety.
In May of last year, Durst signed on to direct the project, penned by skate legend Stacy Peralta, with Fincher acting as the film's producer (see "Fred Durst To Start Rollin' Film On Skateboard Flick"). Fincher will now reportedly man the director's chair, with shooting expected to begin late this year.
The move frees up time for Durst to promote the next Limp Bizkit album, tentatively titled Less Is More, which is expected to hit stores on April 1 (see "Fred Durst Takes 'Less Is More' Approach With New Limp Bizkit LP").
Durst, who has directed scores of videos, has also been linked to the big-screen projects "Wanna-Be," "Runt" and "Life Without Joe" (see "Durst May Work With Fincher On Mob Film").
