David Fincher, the brilliant mind behind films like Fight Club, Alien 3, and Se7en, is ready to deliver his next project with streaming giant Netflix titled Mindhunter. A new trailer for the serial killer series has just been released.
Written by Joe Penhall and Scott Buck, Mindhunter is based on the 1996 book ”Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit’, by John Douglas, a former special agent, with Mark Olshaker. The book takes a look at some of Douglas’ most high-profile cases, including the Atlanta child Killings, the Green River Killer, and the serial killer who slaughtered prostitutes in Alaska.
Starring Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallanay, Anna Torv, and Hannah Gross, Mindhunter is set in 1979 and centers on the inquisitive and skilled FBI Agent Bill Tench (McCallany). Along with fellow serial killer investigator in the behavioral science unit, FBI Agent Holden Ford (Groff), Tench interviews serial killers to help them solve current murders.
David Fincher, Charlize Theron, and Cean Chaffin serve as executive producers for the Netflix series, premiering on Friday, October 13, 2017.
