The story follows a New York City psychiatrist who shoots and kills a home intruder. The event leads to a slew of media attention, and also causes the victim's accomplice to start gunning for the shrink.
The project will fall under David Fincher's newly-formed company Panic Pictures, which is set up at Media Rights Capital. It isn't known whether David Fincher will actually direct Panic Attack, or if he will only remain as a producer. Here's what author Jason Starr had to say about Panic Attack.
"The thing about Panic Attack is that there's a really compelling antihero in this guy Johnny Long [the revenge-minded cohort stalking the psychiatrist and his family]. He's a very clever, Ripley-esque psychopath."
No production schedule was given for Panic Attack.
