The Game is a 1997 Neo-noir psychological thriller film directed by David Fincher, starring Michael Douglas, featuring Sean Penn, and produced by Polygram. It tells the story of an investment banker who is given a mysterious gift: participation in a game that integrates in strange ways with his life. As the lines between the banker's real life and the game become more uncertain, there are hints of a large conspiracy.
The project began at MGM but was soon put into turnaround where it was eventually picked up by Propaganda Films. Director Jonathan Mostow was originally scheduled to direct the film with Kyle MacLachlan and Bridget Fonda cast in the lead roles. However, in early 1992, the project was moved to PolyGram Filmed Entertainment and Mostow was no longer attached to direct. Producer Steve Golin gave the screenplay to Fincher who agreed to direct. The director planned to make The Game before Seven but when Brad Pitt became available he did that film instead. The success of Seven gave the producers of The Game an opportunity to acquire a larger budget.
The Game was well received by critics like Roger Ebert and major periodicals like The New York Times, though Leonard Maltin found the film "unusually mean-spirited" and lacking a sense of humor The Game had middling box-office returns compared to the success of Fincher's previous film, Seven. It was ranked #44 on Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments.
