What's The Killer about?

It revolves around the titular assassin who gets into an international manhunt after something goes wrong. The synopsis by Netflix states, “Solitary, cold, methodical and unencumbered by scruples or regrets, a killer waits in the shadows, watching for his next target. Yet, the longer he waits, the more he thinks he's losing his mind, if not his cool.”

David Fincher's seventh thriller

While David has directed 12 films so far, The Killer is his seventh thriller. Best known for helming nail-biting thrillers like Se7en, The Game, Panic Room, Zodiac, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl, the auteur has also directed two thriller shows in House of Cards (2 episodes) and Mindhunter (7 episodes).

David's fifth collaboration with Netflix

David has directed three Netflix shows in House of Cards, Mindhunter, and Love, Death & Robots (directed one episode). Besides these, his last directorial, Mank (2020), also released on Netlfix after a limited theatrical run and subsequently even won a couple of Oscars next year.
