David Fincher's The Killer - What we know about it

Like so many directors David Fincher has embraced the freedom he gets to make films for Netflix and his 2020 film ‘Mank’ for the streamer earned him another Oscar nomination (amongst ten in all for the film) with the film winning two for its cinematography and production design. In fact Fincher’s last film made directly for cinema was 2014’s ‘Gone Girl’ and since then it’s his Mindhunters series that has taken much of his time. But for the last twenty years he’s been developing ‘The Killer’ a pet project of his for over twenty years which has now been shot and we have a first poster. But here’s what we know about David Fincher’s, ‘The Killer’…..
