British Series Utopia Remake for HBO

David Fincher (Fight Club, Se7en) will be directing this new version of the 6 part British TV series called Utopia.  HBO is probably the best spot for this as the original series was violent and adult with controversial scenes including a shooting in a school.  The plot is about the search for a manuscript for a never published graphic novel that seems to have information about upcoming disasters.  A few fans get wrapped up in looking for the novel as a collectible but get involved in the government and an organization that will do anything to get the manuscript back.

The original TV series came out in January 2013, lasting 6 episodes but has yet to aired its second season which has been commissioned.  Original creator Dennis Kelly will oversee the US version.
