Paramount Pictures has acquired graphic novel The Killer and will develop it as a directing vehicle for David Fincher. The movie will be produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment and Alexandra Milchan.
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 video game 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.
