Cult movie maker David Fincher has passed on a possible sequel to seminal movie SE7EN because he found the premise of the follow-up laughable.

Ficher tells website HOLLYWOODNEWS.COM he has been presented with a script based around Morgan Freeman's character DET LT WILLIAM SOMERSET - but he refuses to direct it.

Fincher, who worked with Brad Pitt again on Fight Club, says, "I read a script two or three years ago that they wanted to make the sequel to Se7en. It didn't make a lot of sense to me.

"They wanted Morgan to have become clairvoyant in some way and that was the way he was now solving serial-killer cases. I was like, 'Well, that's handy.' It's the kind of high concept you worry about.

"So I don't know that there is going to be a sequel. I do know that they have to call me if they're going to do it."
