Thriller Killer Finance...

The serial-killer genre has struck again. Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures are in advanced negotiations to co-finance "Zodiac," a thriller detailing the obsessive efforts of three people who sought to bring the famed Zodiac killer to justice and the toll it took on their personal lives.

David Fincher (Fight Club, Panic Room, Alien 3) is in negotiations to direct the movie.

The movie will be based on Robert Graysmith's 1986 true-crime tome "Zodiac" and its 2002 sequel, "Zodiac Unmasked: The Identity of America's Most Elusive Serial Killer Revealed." The books trace the mystery of the serial killer who terrorized the San Francisco area from 1966-78. The killer committed at least 37 murders and documented his exploits in taunting letters sent to the San Francisco Chronicle.
