David Fincher Has A “Panic Attack”?

Following on from his “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” adaptation, David Fincher looks to be continuing his return to the macabre territory that made him famous.

Fincher’s Panic Pictures production company has just optioned Jason Starr’s 2009 macabre crime novel “Panic Attack” reports Vulture.

The story deals with a New York psychiatrist who shoots and kills a home intruder, then faces a media frenzy and the victim’s vengeful accomplice.

“Ocean’s Eleven” and “Tower Heist” screenwriter Ted Griffin will adapt the book. Four of Starr’s previous novels are already in development in Hollywood in one form or another.
