How Long Does It Take David Fincher to Film Eight Pages?

Ten hours, give or take. Movieline caught up with the young actress Rooney Mara, who has a part in David Fincher's The Social Network (i.e., the Facebook movie), to see how working with the notoriously not-so-charming director was going. “You know, the first day we did an eight-page scene, and it took about six minutes to do it all the way through," she said. "I think we did it about 99 times?" Acting: sometimes, not easy. [Movieline]
