Vulture reports that David Fincher has optioned the rights to Jason Starr's Panic Attack. He's set Ted Griffin (Ocean's Elven, Tower Heist) to write a treatment. The novel focuses on a New York shrink who shoots and kills a home intruder, then faces a media frenzy and the victim's vengeful accomplice. This treads on similar grounds to Fincher's Panic Room so it's likely he will only produce as he hasn't announced if he'll direct.
David also has other projects in the works including The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest, Heavy Metal, The Killer (comic book), Black Hole (comic book), Ness/Torso, Devil In The White City and Disney's 2,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
