World Premiere, 2023 Venice Film Festival
After a fateful near-miss, an assassin battles his employers, and himself, on an international manhunt he insists isn’t personal.
For his first thriller in almost a decade, David Fincher reunited with Se7en (1995) screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker and Erik Messerschmidt, the Academy Award winning cinematographer of Mank (2020), to adapt the 1998 graphic novel by Alexis “Matz” Nolent illustrated by Luc Jacamon.
