Now he's taken John Douglas's fantastic true-crime book, Mindhunter, and brought it to the small screen via Netflix, who Shawn and I have pimped so much lately we should be getting royalties.
But no mind. The series is set to premiere in October, and a trailer was unleashed earlier today. We've got it for your eye holes!
Fincher is an executive producer and directs some of the episodes, so I have high hopes. His visual style is stamped all over this preview, and there's a hefty creep factor to the proceedings. I can't wait to see how this material his handled.
Mindhunter stars Jonathan Groff and Fringe's Anna Torv. All 10 episodes hit Flix of the Net on Oct. 13.
