David Fincher has not wanted to wait any longer to decide that his next film will be ‘The Killer’, adaptation of a French comic by Alexis Nolent that he already wanted to take to the big screen in 2007 with Brad Pitt as the main character. The project did not prosper then, but everything indicates that now it will succeed.
A murderer in crisis
‘The Killer’ tells the story of a cold-blooded murderer who has a psychological crisis in a world without any kind of moral compass, as he begins to have a conscience but cannot stop using his particular abilities. For the title role you want Michael Fassbender, but the agreement is far from closed according to Deadline.
The film would also be his reunion with Andrew Kevin Walker, screenwriter for the acclaimed ‘Seven’ who had not collaborated with the filmmaker in all this time. To his credit we also find titles such as ‘Murder in 8mm’ or ‘Sleepy Hollow’.
Let’s remember that Fincher has an exclusive contract with Netflix that runs until 2024 and that he made it clear that it had been sold out after the second season of ‘Mindhunter’ and that there will probably never be a third, so welcome to this new project so shortly after the premiere of ‘Mank’.
