This thriller will then be broadcast on Netflix in 2022.
At the time of release from Mank, his last film as a director, David Fincher revealed to have spent a four-year deal with Netflix to produce various content. He who is already behind the series Mindhunter and Love, Death and Robots for the platform will stage its next film, The Killer, as part of this contract.
Mindhunter season 3 wasn’t ready, but David Fincher could come back one day
From a series of French comics by Matz (Alexis Nolent) and Luc Jacamon, published between 1998 and 2004 by Casterman, The Killer will follow a serial killer, played by Michael Fassbender, who begins to feel remorse over his crimes and cracks emotionally as he realizes. And he’s a screenwriter Fincher knows well, Andrew Kevin Walker, (Seven, Fight Club and The Game), who is responsible for writing the film. The director will also reunite for the occasion with his cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt, who recently won the Oscar for Mank, and it is the latter who has just revealed to El Diario Vasco (via The Fincher Analyst) that the shooting would take place in November in Paris, then that the film should be posted on Netflix at the end of 2022. This choice of shooting location may explain this photo, taken last May in the French capital, on the sidelines of the filming of the new season ofEmily in Paris, a hit Netflix series worn by Lily Collins, where the director was spotted chatting with the actress about Mank ?
