Director David Fincher and writer Andrew Kevin Walker made serial killer thriller magic together when they joined forces for Se7en back in the ’90s, and they’re looking to re-bottle some of that lightning with a brand new thriller titled The Killer for Netflix.
Reported by Deadline today, the movie will adapt Alexis Nolent‘s same-titled series of graphic novels, with Andrew Kevin Walker scripting and David Fincher directing.
Additionally, the site notes that Michael Fassbender is in talks to star.
“The series followed a cold-blooded assassin who begins to have psychological crisis in a world with no moral compass,” Deadline explains about the source material.
Aside from Se7en, Andrew Kevin Walker’s writing credits also include the Nicolas Cage-starring 8MM, Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, and the 2010 version of The Wolfman.
As for Fincher, he’s been working with Netflix on various projects in recent years, including last year’s feature film Mank and the series “Mindhunter,” which may be no more.
