On the occasion of the first full-boat trailer for David Fincher‘s Mindhunter, a ten-episode Netflix series that will debut on 10.13, here’s a riff I posted five months ago: The first two episodes were directed by David Fincher; the series is produced by Fincher, Charlize Theron, Josh Donen and Cean Chaffin. Like Zodiac, Mindhunter is set in the ’70s. Okay, 1979. It’s about a pair of FBI agents (Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany) interviewing imprisoned serial killers to try to solve ongoing cases. Which of course is precisely what Manhunter‘s Will Graham (William Petersen) and Silence of the Lamb‘s Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) did — i.e., interview Hannibal Lecter in an attempt to capture, respectively, the Tooth Fairy and Buffalo Bill. Written by showrunner Joe Penhall (The Road).
