David Fincher is going back to the serial killer well with “Mind Hunter”, a drama series he and Charlize Theron are developing for HBO and Fox 21 reports Variety.
Based on the book by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker, the book recounts Douglas’ experiences as a top FBI investigator of serial killers and rapists. He was one of the first criminal profilers who developed techniques that are still in use today.
“Dexter” executive producer Scott Buck is penning the pilot with the various episodes revolving around the investigation of serial killers. Theron and Fincher are executive producing along with Jennifer Orme Erwin and Buck.
