  3. David Fincher, Michael Fassbender to Team for Assassin Drama 'The Killer'

Andrew Kevin Walker, who wrote Fincher's 'Se7en,' has reunited with the filmmaker for Netflix's hardboiled noir.


David Fincher and Michael Fassbender are teaming up for The Killer, Fincher’s long-gestating assassin drama that may finally go before cameras before year’s end, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.


Fincher has been associated with Killersince at least 2007, when the project, an adaptation of the French graphic novel, was set up at Paramount. Brad Pitt, who worked with Fincher on several films including Se7en, was even at one point circling to star. The project was put into turnaround and was quietly picked up by Netflix, with the streamer and filmmaker starting from first position.


And while it was a good six years between Fincher’s last movies, 2014’s Gone Girl and last year’s Mank, sources say this one is moving fast for a September start.


What's more is that the project is being written by Andrew Kevin Walker, the scribe who wrote Fincher's screen classics Se7en, The Game and Fight Club.


In a deal that is still coming together, Fassbender would star as an assassin who begins to psychologically crack as he develops a conscience, even as his clients continue to demand his skills. The graphic novel, described as hardboiled noir, hailed from writer Alexis Nolent, under the pen name Matz, and artist Luc Jacamon. Representatives for Fassbender did not return requests for comment although several sources tell THR that talks are underway.


Ceán Chaffin, Fincher's longtime producing partner, is producing.


Fassbender last starred in X-Men: Dark Phoenix and recently wrapped Taika Waititi’s inspirational soccer pic, Next Goal Wins. He is repped by Range Media.


Fincher’s Mank is a major player this awards season and has six Golden Globe nominations, including best picture and best director, going into this weekend’s ceremony. The filmmaker is repped by manager Joshua Donen.

Although David Fincher films generally are not for me, I always still see all of them because I think he is a super talented director and has a really good way with the camera. I'm interested to see how this turns out, especially since David has a lot of experience with films of this genre.
Have a nice day!

Didn't they attempt to turn this into a TV show for Showtime or FX in the early 2010s?

As long this don't turns into a long socialist propaganda film like Mank, ok.

I’m a huge libertarian and I don’t think that’s the overall message of the film. I believed the message (or one of them) was about the power of the press and manipulating people for a certain goal.
