David Fincher will take on Panic Attack from author Jason Starr
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Even though David Fincher is busy in post-production with THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (have you seen the trailer yet? pretty intense) he’s no slouch and has optioned the novel ‘Panic Attack’ from author Jason Starr. The book is described as a “macabre crime novel” about a New York psychiatrist who kills an intruder in his home and must deal with the media frenzy and fallout as well as the intruder’s accomplice who is seeking revenge. Macabre crime novel? Sounds completely up Mr. Fincher’s alley at this time. Now keep in mind that Fincher has just optioned the rights and this does not mean he will direct the film, although even with him on as a producer this has a good shot of being an intense and gruesome ride.
THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig and hits theaters on December 21, 2011.
