It seems that David Fincher is not wasting any more time on his future feature film projects since he is already working on a new film for Netflix according to Deadline. After Mank, acclaimed by critics and nominated for the Golden Globes, the filmmaker is working on another long-standing project: The Killer, a thriller adapted from the comic book series “Le Tueur” by Frenchmen Alexis Nolent (Matz) and Luc Jacamon .
The Killer tells the story of a contract killer coldly executing his contracts who begins to question his lifestyle. The comics are focused on the character’s monologues in full introspection, on his moods and his memories. David Fincher already had the idea of transposing these graphic novels on the big screen with Brad Pitt for Paramount in 2007, without success.
