We’re finally getting new information on The Killer, and we’re happy that this Netflix movie is moving forward after a long hiatus. We tell you everything we know about this upcoming film right down below.

The Killer is an action film written by Andrew Kevin Walker and directed by Mank‘s David Fincher. This isn’t Fincher and Walker’s first collaboration. They worked together on the ’90s film Seven in the past. If their work on Seven is anything to go by, we expect The Killer to be a must-watch.

The thriller is based on the French graphic novel titled the same name by Alexis Nolent. It’s a part of Fincher’s four-year deal with Netflix, and we can’t wait to see what other content Fincher will create for the streamer.

So when can we expect the highly anticipated movie to come to Netflix? Who’s in the cast, and what is this film about? We answer all of these questions and more down below.

The Killer filming updates

Fincher’s upcoming movie has officially wrapped filming. The news comes from an Instagram post shared by dolly grip Dwayne Barr.

Here is Barr’s caption:

"And so it ends….We wrapped David Fincher’s “The Killer” last night. Thank you @emesserschmidt for the wrap gift. Too tired to express everything I desire to share. Kudos to Michael Fassbender and Tilda Swinton."

The film will also arrive in select theaters in October.

Filming took place in various places all over the world. We’re not sure what the budget is for this film, but if we had to guess, we’d say it’s more on the expensive side. I mean, production took place across multiple continents and countries.

The Killer plot

An official synopsis hasn’t been released by Netflix yet, but we have an idea of what the film is about based on the movie’s source material (book). Check out The Killer‘s novel logline via Amazon down below:

"A man solitary and cold, methodical and unencumbered by scruples or regrets, the killer waits in the shadows, watching for his next target. And yet the longer he waits, the more he thinks he’s losing his mind, if not his cool. A brutal, bloody and stylish noir story of a professional assassin lost in a world without a moral compass, this is a case study of a man alone, armed to the teeth and slowly losing his mind."

Netflix released the official logline for the movie, and we shared it below.

"After a fateful near-miss an assassin battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal."
