Charlize Theron and David Fincher are teaming up to develop the book "Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit," into a series for HBO. The show is shedding the marblemouth title and sticking with the more simplistic Mind Hunter. Not to be confused with Renny Harling’s crap-terpiece Mind Hunters, starring Christian Slater and LL Cool J.
The book, by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker, recounts Douglas’s experience as a top FBI investigator of serial killers and rapists and his profiling techniques. So it’s essentially an HBO version of CBS’s Criminal Minds. The main difference being this version will have swears and no soap actors. This isn’t a bad idea at all. Fincher and Theron both have proven track records, and there’s no way this show will give any serial killers the edge in the War On Killing People. If there’s one thing that movies have taught me, methodical serial killers HATE complex games of cat and mouse. It’s right up there with sending menacing letters to newspapers on their list of dislikes. (Collider)
