A new Netflix series from the creator of the streaming service’s acclaimed “House of Cards” has Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron on board.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Theron is attached as a producer on “Mindhunter,” from David Fincher.
“Originally developed at HBO via Fox 21, the series hails from Fincher and Charlize Theron’s Denver and Delilah banner. Joe Penhall (‘The Road’) will pen the script for Netflix with Fincher and Theron on board to exec produce,” THR reports.
The project is based on the 1996 book “Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit,” by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
Theron won an Academy Award for her lead performance in “Monster” in 2004. She was also nominated for “North Country” in 2006.
