Eat Your Heart Out, HBO: David Fincher Is Making A Crime Series With Charlize Theron And Netflix

By  | 

Maybe the folks at Netflix will actually let him make a TV series.

David Fincher is one of the most accomplished filmmakers around in the movie world, with almost all of his films garnering extreme acclaim and high box office returns. But to say that Fincher has been unable to find the same amount of success on the small screen is an understatement: though he did a great job kicking off the ship that was House of Cards (his visual style in the pilot became the norm for the series overall), the series that he himself put a lot of work in developing both died a pretty sad death last year. Yes, HBO canceled production on his personal project Video Synchronicity AND his American remake of British show Utopia, pretty much kicking him to the curb all in one move. But now Fincher is making his TV resurgence with the outlet he first got his start with: Netflix.

According to Deadline, David Fincher and Charlize Theron are teaming up to executive produce a new Netflix series entitled Mindhunter, based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, written by former FBI agents John Douglas and Mark Olshaker. Take a wild guess what it could be about.

Since I can clearly see you are stumped, here’s the basis of the book as outlined by Deadline:

For years, Douglas pursued some of the most notorious serial killers and rapists, developing profiling techniques to catch them. The book goes behind the scenes of some of his highest-profile cases, including the man who hunted prostitutes in Alaska, the Atlanta child murderer, and Seattle’s Green River killer. To hone in his profiling methods Douglas interviewed and studied a skew of serial killers. Several book and TV characters have been based in part on him, including Jack Crawford in Thomas Harris’ The Silence of the Lambs, Will Graham on Hannibal and Jason Gideon on Criminal Minds.

So yeah, David Fincher is developing a serial killer procedural on Netflix. Yeah, I could get into that. The site even says that Fincher is eyeing a directorial role on the show, although its unclear if hell just handle the pilot or direct the entire thing. Personally Im hoping for the latter, but well see in time. In any case, Im going to keep a close eye on this show.

  • Ihan mielenkiintoinen kommentti, itse olen tähän mennessä syönyt soijaa hyvillä mielin, koska tuloksia, onko se “epäterveellistä” ja kuinka paljon, on hyvinkin ristiriitaista tietoa. Lisäksi uskon, että (luomu)soijan syöminen on aina parempi vaihtoehto kuin syödä lihaa. Suomessakin elämille syötetään paljon geenimuunneltua rehua, puhumattakaan lihansyönnin ekologisista ja eettisistä vaikutuksista. Kasvissyöjänkään ei ole pakko syödä soijaa älyttömiä määriä, onneksi on kaikenlaisia ihania papuja ja linssejä ja muita proteniinipitoisia tuotteita.

  • just wanted to say that this website is realy great and Im Glad that i found itI’ve gotten exposed to quite a lot of stuff here and just wanted to give my 6 cents. Im about to write a great article for this forum about , , , , and I’ll publish it as soon as i finish it.ifdvklmvsklmdslmdvCheers

  • their … @scientheism their collective meditations being paramount to our current understanding of how we think. The idea of attaining a state of enlightenment sounds alarm bells for me. I could be wrong but doesn’t the idea of attaining a goal of enlightenment run contray to the dialectic flux of all things. In your previous comment you wrote rather astutely that morality is nothing but a consensus reality. A truely brilliant turn of phrase the truth of which is undeniable. Was this answer helpful?

  • Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its field. Good blog!

  • Hello Ari,thank you for answering my comment. To clarify my oringinal text; I'm not saying that you are staging this pictures, but the two women are. Clearly going for hilarious and over the top. Not that here is anything wrong with that, I just can't make this pictures fit into the context of your usual postings. This is a dress up party. GreetingsMissJanet

  • hmmm…..the baby garment industry could make a killing taking advantage of and setting this concept up for practical use.I know plenty of parents who would love to to toss their child to some convenient wall or ceiling and have them stick there for a while.

  • Eating healthy is a constant challenge in my household. With a busy lifestyle, preparation of food and planning is often the biggest hurdle, along with late nights and doing too much. Junk food becomes the default as it’s easier buy in these times, but keeping those sign boards in mind will definitely help me sort out my priorities for the today!

  • Sir, Do IITs and IISc provide a certificate showing that the ph.d has been awarded following the UGC regulations 2009. I am a Ph.D student in IISc. It will create difficulties in future for students if they dont get such a certificate.

  • Sorry but you're all dreaming if you think the MSM will bring up Rubio's non-eligibility if he were to accept a VP nomination. They will simply ignore it, just like they have BHO's and all will be well. No Constitution, no problem! Makes the Obozo legitimate and they aren't culpable for their cover-up. And I guarantee Rubio won't rock the boat by bringing it up either. He's had multiple chances already.

  • I have my issues with Pullman sure, but seriously the man can write and scenes like this is proof of that. I don't even live in a world with daemons and I feel like this is one of the creepiest/wrongist things I've read. That takes some definite skill.

  • I think the idea that men are brutish and driven by impulses also explains a of the revisionist history that any man not married or a womanizer must then be gay. After all — all men have to have regular sexual outlets because we’re animals and that’s what animals do. So if a man’s not getting any regularly from a wife (the traditional way) or known as a womanizer — he must then be homosexual.

  • with hard work and determination. The HT helped with the appetite and the energy but when yoga, walking, weights and a good diet were added in… OMG. I have gone from 235 lbs to 178 lbs. I have gone from an 18 pant size to size 8. The energy, vitality and general healthier life style is amazing. The journey started November of 2011 with a few pauses for vacations. In all honesty going back to healthier eating has been easy with HT and a goal in mind. The pictures will be posted one day on the site but with me in a bikini. Mu ha ha ha.
