A streamlined thriller about an assassin discovering his limits, THE KILLER is the twelfth feature of director David Fincher. Michael Fassbender stars as the unnamed hitman, whose carefully constructed life is disturbed after a hit goes awry. Despite his personal mantra to remain detached and methodical, he finds himself hunting those who dare threaten him.
Adapted from the acclaimed graphic novel written by “Matz” (Alexis Nolent), THE KILLER explores the boundaries of the revenge movie. “In a revenge movie, you want to see people get their revenge,” says Fincher. “We just used the idea to ask: ‘Or do you?’”
