Although they’ve never worked together before on a movie, David Fincher and Charlize Theron are teaming up to create a new drama series called Mind Hunter for HBO.  The show revolves around the investigation of serial killers (original!) and is based off John Douglas and Mark Olshaker’s book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.  According to Variety, “The book recounts Douglas’ experiences as a top FBI investigator of serial killers and rapists, and the profiling techniques he developed.”  I wonder if Douglas goes out to dinner, looks at a guy at another table and thinks, “Yep, that guy’s a rapist.”  Or does profiling not work that way?

Scott Buck will write the script, which is a good choice since Buck is an executive producer on Dexter.  Theron, Fincher, Buck will executive produce along with Jennifer Orme Erwin who was the one who brought the book to Theron’s attention.

Theron is set to co-star in George Miller’s upcoming Mad Max movie, Fury Road, which is scheduled to begin filming this summer in Australia.  Fincher is currently at work on the “Facebook-movie”, The Social Network, which is about the founding of the popular website.
