The director and author — who worked together on a film adaptation of Flynn’s best-selling Gone Girl — will team up again for Utopia, which HBO has ordered to series. The plot: A bunch of graphic novel nerds find a secret manuscript and then … things go very wrong. (The manuscript is not what it seems, etc. It’s based on a British show of the same name.) Fincher will direct and executive produce; Flynn has signed an overall deal to write. Okay, great, but can we see Gone Girl already?
