Charlize Theron, David Fincher developing HBO pilot
Charlize Theron and David Fincher are developing "Mind Hunter," a potential drama pilot for HBO.
Scripted by Scott Buck ("Dexter"), "Mind Hunter" is based on the book "Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit," by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
Based on that title, you'd have a hard time imagining what the pilot/series is about, right? Well, it turns out that it's about the FBI's elite serial crime unit.
Theron, Fincher, Buck and Jennifer Orme Erwin would produce the Fox 21 project, currently in the early script stages, according to Variety.
Fincher's next directing project is "The Social Network," the Aaron Sorkin-scripted Facebook film.
Most recently seen in "The Road," Oscar winner Theron has "Fury Road" and the fourth "Mad Max" film on her plate.
