David Fincher Tackling The Killer for Paramount
Pitt to produce.David Fincher and Brad Pitt have been rewarded with critical and commercial success -- so why not do it again?
According to Variety, the director and star of Seven, Fight Club, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button are teaming up again -- sort of. Pitt's Plan B Entertainment is producing The Killer, a graphic novel adaptation to be directed by Fincher and released by Paramount. From the article:
Allesandro Camon will write the script, about a top assassin suddenly plagued by his conscience and a highly competent cop hot on his tail.
The graphic novel was written by Matz, whose real name is Alexis Nolent. The author works for Ubisoft, one of France's biggest videogame companies. Luc Jacamon illustrated the novel, which was originally published in France in 1988 by Casterman and debuted in the U.S. as a 10-issue series published by Archaia Studio Press.
