Re: Mindhunter (Netflix) -- Season 1 -- S: Groff, McCallany, Torv; EP: Fincher, Thero

Though reports earlier this year suggested a Fall start, it looks like the David Fincher-directed sequel to “World War Z” won’t be making that date.

The Playlist reports that the film won’t be shooting this year at all, but is still in development and location scouting in Spain, Sweden, Texas having taken place. They add that “the script isn’t quite there” apparently with Steven Knight and Dennis Kelly penning the screenplay at last report.

Fincher’s attention presently, and for much of the rest of the year, will be on the second season of Netflix’s “Mindhunter” which begins production at the end of this month following several months of prep.

Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany and Anna Torv return for the new season which heads to Southern Georgia and will focus on the infamous Atlanta child murders of the late 1970s and early 80s, which featured the relatively uncommon case of an African-American serial killer. The new season runs for a slightly shorter eight episodes.

Fincher himself will direct the premiere and finale, Andrew Dominik (“The Assassination of Jesse James”) will helm another two, and Carl Franklin (“Devil In A Blue Dress,” “House Of Cards”) will direct the remaining four. Fincher himself will direct all the reshoots on every episode, just like in the first season.

Netflix is expected to air the second season in early 2019.

So for all that BTK stuff, we aren't dealing with that case in S2? Spectacular.

If they're planning multiple seasons it doesn't make any sense to do BTK since
Spoiler:
he wasn't caught for 31 years (2005).
. I'm sure him and a few others will be scattered in the background, though considering the time frame ('79 - '81), we won't see BTK himself since it was a quiet stretch for him until '85.

That case is a series thread, not a season one.

Well, look at the time frame the show is based in and when the BTK case was resolved. Wouldn't make much sense now would it? My guess is that is the long term case that will be solved in last season of series, whenever that is.

I'm pretty sure I saw early on that BTK was just going to run in the back round. Wouldn't make much sense to have him be a focal point at this point in time.

"Run in the background" ≠"Open every episode with".

But I do understand about the timing.

Season One didn't have them investigating actual cases, right? It was just fictional crimes and interviews with real-life serial killers. That's a pretty big change in the focus of the show in and of itself.

So Season 2 is going to focus on Wayne Williams?

Finished watching the show earlier this evening. Really enjoyed it but didn't care too much for the last few Episodes.

Re: Mindhunter (Netflix) -- Season 1 -- S: Groff, McCallany, Torv; EP: Fincher, Thero

http://www.darkhorizons.com/herriman...or-mindhunter/

Talk about being typecast.

Earlier this week came the news that much respected Australian actor Damon Herriman will be playing notorious cult leader Charles Manson in a role in Quentin Tarantino’s currently filming ninth directorial feature “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”.

Today comes word via Collider that Herriman is playing Manson yet again, this time in the upcoming second season of the David Fincher-produced “Mindhunter” series for Netflix.

The new season of the serial killer drama is expected to deal with the Atlanta Child Murders in the late 70s/early 80s, when an imprisoned Manson was in his late 40s – same age as Herriman is now. Herriman will be portraying a younger and free 35-year-old Manson in the Tarantino film which is set in 1969.

The site says Herriman was cast as Manson in “Mindhunter” first and already filmed his scenes over the summer, as opposed to Tarantino’s film which is still very much in the midst of shooting. It’s not clear how big a role he will have in either project at this point, but it’s expected to only be a supporting turn in both cases.

Though mostly unknown to U.S. audiences beyond the well-received recurring role of Dewey Crowe in FX’s “Justified,” Herriman has been acting since the early 1980s and has ninety-eight film and TV credits to his name. He now follows in the footsteps of actors like Michael Sheen who have taken on the same role (in Sheen’s case UK Prime Minister Tony Blair) in multiple projects.

Both the new season of “Mindhunter” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” are due to be released in 2019.

All I'm seeing is a potential Tarantino/Fincher crossover.

Odd that Manson will now be a character, since they showed photos of the real Manson numerous times in the first season.

Weird that they both cast the same guy. I wonder if Damon Herriman recently carved a swastika into his forehead and is now finding that it's limiting his choice of roles.

At first, I laughed...then I started to think about what you said a little more and now I feel guilty.
