The one who had been absent from the big screen since the series mindhunter (whose third season should not finally see the light of day) and the film mank (2020) returns with a new crime thriller (still very secret), adapted from the eponymous graphic novel by Alexis Nolent (Matz). In his highly anticipated first visuals, we recognize Michael Fassbender as a contract killer, in a Parisian setting, probably observing his next victim… As he prepares to go through an existential crisis, his plans are in danger of being turned upside down.
In the casting, we will also find Charles Parnell, Arliss Howard, Sophie Charlotte And Tilda Swinton. The Killer marks the new collaboration between David Fincher and Netflix: the adaptation project actually dates back to 2009, when it was under the Paramount banner. It is more than ten years after the streaming giant makes it possible.
On Saturday October 14, following a screening of Zodiacthe 6th film by the American director, a meeting/masterclass will also be held in his presence, entitled “David Fincher by David Fincher, a film lesson”. Here’s a taste:
“Young WorksSeven, Fight Club or Panic Room are markers of their era, when the most recent Zodiac Or The Social Network no longer testify only to manic virtuosity, but to a new form of maturity. That of the greatest.”, salutes the Cinémathèque française.
