The political-thriller novel House of Cards, written by Michael Dobbs, former Conservative Party chief of staff, is set at the end of Margaret Thatcher's tenure as prime minister and follows a British politician with his eye on the top job. In 1990, it was adapted by the BBC as a miniseries written by Andrew Davies and starring Ian Richardson. It went on to win a BAFTA award for Richardson and an Emmy for Davies.
Fincher's adaptation, set in the U.S., was written by playwright/screenwriter Beau Willimon (The Ides of March). The project is yet to be taken out to TV networks. Spacey was most recently attached to The Crux, a drama project for HBO written by Rod Lurie.
