David Fincher Doubles Down with Gone Girl's Gillian Flynn for HBO Series

In a major score, HBO announced author Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, Dark Places) and director David Fincher, who collaborated on the upcoming adaptation of Gone Girl, will re-team on an remake of the popular British series, Utopia. The conspiracy thriller was a big hit, and slightly controversial after UK Channel 4 aired a school shooting episode only a month after the Newtown, CT shooting; it’s also marked with violence and strong language—pretty much an HBO trademark at this point. Here’s the official description:

“The die-hard fans of an iconic, underground graphic novel are suddenly launched into their own pop-culture thriller when they learn that the author has secretly written a sequel. Unfortunately, the new manuscript is much more than just a book and those on the hunt for it suddenly find themselves in a game of shifting loyalties, conspiracy and shocking twists as the true meaning of the book is slowly revealed.”

And the trailer for the original series:

Frankly, I’m down with anything from this pairing. Flynn is an addictive suspense writer, and Fincher is Fincher—made to explore darkness. Can’t wait to see the cast picks.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) did think Gone Girl’s ending was a little silly; curious to see how Fincher works that out.
