According to ComingSoon.net, David Fincher has been tapped to adapt the Channel 4 series Utopia for a US audience, with the director reteaming with Gone Girl author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn. HBO currently has the US rights to the show, with original series creator Dennis Kelly also coming on board as an executive producer.

Utopia was released last January 2013, focusing on five teenagers who were brought together by a cult comic book before finding themselves hunted down by a shadowy organization known as the network. It is considered as one of the best TV shows that debuted last year, and its second season is currently being filmed, with Channel 4 planning to air later this year.
