HBO’s loss was Netflix’s gain, or rather re-gain, as former House of Cards director David Fincher before set his buffering return with Charlize Theron’ersus Mindhunter. Now, Looking and Glee alum Jonathan Groff features booked the lead function, with Fincher set in order to direct the preliminary.
TVLine first reported the news, though Netflix provides yet to confirm or maybe comment outright. Your series is adapted from John Douglas in addition to Mark Olshanker’s 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, which Theron herself held the privileges to, developing the adaptation over the last four years.
The Road scribe Joe Penhall will publish the script, having Fincher and Theron on board in order to executive produce, and also Fincher to direct. The ebook itself follows Douglas’ a long time developing criminal profiling approaches and tracking down serialized killers for the Federal bureau of investigation. No word yet with who else might celebrity, or if Theron herself may have any acting involvement.
Netflix isn’t slowing down it’s slate of first programming anytime soon, although after Groff, how must Fincher and Theron proceed while using (terribly-named) Mindhunter?
