David Fincher‘s latest film, The Killer, was a hit for Netflix and was the latest in a series of successes for both the director and the streamer, following their previous time together on projects like the Academy Award-nominated Mank, as well as the beloved series Mindhunter. Encouragingly for fans of Fincher, their work together isn’t coming to an end, as exclusively revealed to Collider by Netflix Film chief Scott Stuber.
Speaking with Collider’s Steve Weintraub at the grand reopening of the American Cinematheque at The Egyptian Theatre Hollywood, where Fincher’s latest film will show, Stuber confirmed that plans were afoot for further collaboration with Fincher when questioned if the pair had any plans for projects in the near future, explaining, “Of course. Yeah, I mean, we have a lot in development with him,” Stuber enthused. “He’s a Netflix treasure in a lot of ways. I mean, he really amplified the company, brought it to life, was one of the first artists, if not the first, to really say, “I’m willing to make my stories here.” So he’s someone we have a lot of film and television that are really interesting in both places.” Adding that one of the key talents Fincher possesses is the ability to work in different mediums for Netflix, Stuber professed that he was excited to continue collaborating with a person who “aspires for greatness”, and that Netflix would “always want to be in business” with someone like that. Stuber went on to say:
“He’s one of the best people at both mediums in our whole business, right? So, whatever he wants to do in either of those, we are excited. He’s just so talented. He is so thorough, so precise. He’s really great. What I love about him is I love how he wants to make everyone better. He wants to aspire for greatness, and that’s always someone you admire and want to be in business with.”
What David Fincher Films are Made by Netflix?
To date, David Fincher has made two feature films with Netflix: Mank and The Killer. Mank explores the life and career of Herman J. Mankiewicz, a renowned screenwriter, and is particularly focused on his involvement in writing the screenplay for the classic 1941 film Citizen Kane, which is considered one of the greatest movies in cinematic history. The film was nominated for ten Academy Awards, winning two—Best Cinematography and Best Production Design. Fincher’s most recent film was The Killer, which featured Michael Fassbender as an assassin on the run after a botched hit. Although reviews weren’t as kind as those of Mank, the film was still well received, with praise going to the performances of Fassbender and Tilda Swinton.
