After a fateful near-miss, an assassin (Fassbender) battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal. Fassbender stars in the title role alongside Charles Parnell, Arliss Howard, Sophie Charlotte, and Tilda Swinton. The Killer is drawn from writer Alexis “Matz” Nolent and artist Luc Jacamon’s 1998 graphic novel. Andrew Kevin Walker, who last collaborated with Fincher on their breakout hit Se7en, wrote the film’s screenplay.
Following its premiere at the Venice Film Festival this Sept. 3, The Killer hits select theaters in October and Netflix on Nov. 10.
