About The Killer Movie:

The Killer is an American action thriller film directed by David Fincher from a screenplay by Andrew Kevin Walker. The film stars Michael Fassbender alongside Arliss Howard, Charles Parnell, Kerry O’Malley, Sala Baker, Sophie Charlotte, and Tilda Swinton in supporting roles.

It is based on the French graphic novel series The Killer written by Alexis “Matz” Nolent and illustrated by Luc Jacamon.

Principal photography for the film began in early November 2021 in Paris and wrapped on March 2022.

Alexis Nolent’s graphic novel “The Killer” has been a passion project for David Fincher for nearly 20 years.

This is the second feature film in a 4-year exclusive deal between David Fincher and Netflix with their first film being Mank (2020).

This is the second collaboration between David Fincher and Andrew Kevin Walker following Se7en (1995). However, Walker did do uncredited writing for Fincher’s The Game (1997) and Fight Club (1999).

David Fincher was considering numerous projects for his follow-up to Mank (2020). However, it wasn’t until he met with Michael Fassbender as they had several meetings together about this project. After having numerous in-depth discussions and seeing how committed Fassbender was in doing it, Fincher decided to make The Killer (2022) his follow-up project.

The Killer premiered at the 80th Venice International Film Festival on September 3, 2023, and had a limited theatrical release on October 27, 2023; it was released on November 10, 2023, by Netflix. The film received positive reviews from critics.
