‘The Killer’ Graphic Novel Series Adaptation Coming to Netflix

David Fincher is set to direct an adaptation of the Alexis Nolent’s The Killer graphic novel series where he will team up once again with Seven screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker and with Ceán Chaffin as producer, according to Deadline.com. Fincher has been developing the adaptation of The Killer for almost fourteen years. He has moved The Killer from Paramount and has found the film a new home with Netflix.

The Killer is a French graphic novel series first published in France in 1988. It was then published in the United states in twelve volumes between 1998 and 2013. The story follows a cold-blooded assassin who begins to have an existential crisis when he begins to develop a conscience in a world with no moral compass.

Michael Fassbender is in talks to star in the assassin drama, however that hasn’t been confirmed yet. A production date has also yet to be confirmed.
