Fincher, Flynn Re-Team On “Utopia” Remake

HBO has ordered a remake of last year’s six-episode British Channel 4 conspiracy thriller “Utopia” to series.

“Gone Girl” director David Fincher and author Gillian Flynn are re-teaming to produce the remake which Flynn will write while Fincher will direct and executive produce.

The story revolves around the fans of an iconic, underground graphic novel who are suddenly launched into their own pop-culture thriller when they learn that the author has secretly written a sequel.

Unfortunately, the new manuscript is much more than just a book and those on the hunt for it suddenly find themselves in a game of shifting loyalties, conspiracy and shocking twists.

Fiona O’Shaughnessy, Alexandra Roach and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett starred in the original with a second season set to air later this year.
