and David Fincher are teaming up to bring HBO and Fox 21 a new drama series. Both Theron and Fincher will serve as executive producers for Mind Hunter, which will chronicle fictional serial-killer investigations.
According to Variety, the series is based on John Douglas and Mark Olshaker’s book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.
There’s plenty of serial-killer knowledge backing this project, as Fincher is the brains behind Seven and Zodiac, and Dexter ’s Scott Buck is set to write the Mind Hunter pilot. Buck and Jennifer Orme Erwin will also share executive producer duties with Theron and Fincher.
