According to Vulture, David Fincher has optioned Jason Starr’s 2009 crime novel Panic Attack, about a New Yorker who shoots and kills a home intruder which sparks a media frenzy. Ted Griffin [Ocean’s Eleven] will write the adaptation. The one thing that separates Panic Attack from the rest of the crime novels is that it is much more than just your average crime novel, its about a gun-wielding New York psychologist named Adam Bloom who shoots and kills a home intruder, then faces the ensuing media frenzy and the victim’s vengeful accomplice. But Johnny Long, the surviving accomplice, seeks revenge and stalks the doctor and his family. There’s no word yet on whether he will actually add it to his growing list of directorial possibilities or simply stay as a producing hand. Its possible but with his slate of projects on the horizon including a possible follow up to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo & Cleopatra we will have to wait.
