Onesumore: David Fincher’s ‘The Killer’ Netflix Movie: What We Know So Far
Netflix’s upcoming black thriller The killer starring Michael Fassbender is finally moving forward in 2021. After being in active and passive development for over a decade, Netflix has acquired the rights to the film from Paramount and is rapidly moving it forward.
Netflix The killer will be directed by Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee David Fincher, known for his critically acclaimed hits Gone Girl, Mank, The Social Network, Mindhunter, Zodiac, Se7en and much more. In fact, Fincher will again be with Se7en writer Andrew Kevin Walker for Netflix The killer. Walker also wrote the Oscar-winning film The werewolf and the 1999 film Sleepy hollow which starred Johnny Depp. Ceán Chaffin, Fincher’s long-time production partner, produces.

Netflix The killer is based on the French graphic novel of the same name by author Alexis Nolent, under the pseudonym Matz, and artist Luc Jacamon. The first volume was released in 1998 and the last in 2017. It is not yet clear which parts of the graphic novel will be adapted into the film, so I hope there is a chance for the sequels, provided The killer turns out to be a success.
