In November 2007, it was announced that David Fincher would be directing an adaptation of the Matz French comic book The Killer, with Allesandro Camon writing the script, Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment producing, and Paramount Pictures distributing.[3] By February 2021, Fincher had taken the project to Netflix, where he had signed an overall deal, with Andrew Kevin Walker now writing the script and Michael Fassbender circling the lead role.[1] By June, it was reported that Fincher was planning to begin filming in November 2021 in Paris, while the involvement of cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt was also confirmed.[4] Tilda Swinton joined the cast in October.[5]


Principal photography began in early November 2021 in Paris; filming was also expected to take place in New Orleans and the Dominican Republic.[6] In January 2022, it was confirmed that filming would take place in St. Charles, Illinois in March for ten days.[7] On March 28, 2022, it was announced that filming had wrapped.[8]


The Killer is expected to be released on Netflix on November 10, 2023. The release date was revealed in a preview of Netflix's 2023 film slate uploaded to YouTube on January 18, 2023.[9]
