“Gone Girl” director David Fincher’s new movie “Mank” has got its first teaser trailer (watch above) on Netflix. The film is set to arrive in limited theatres in November and will premiere globally at Netflix on December 4.
The black-and-white biopic follows the life of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz and his battle with director Orson Welles over the screenplay credit of “Citizen Kane.”
Directed by David Fincher, the film stars Academy Award Winner Gary Oldman, Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, Arliss Howard, Tom Pelphrey, Sam Troughton, Ferdinand Kingsley, Tuppence Middleton, Tom Burke, and Charles Dance. “Mank” is based on a 2003 script by Fincher’s late father Jack Fincher.
Official logline says: 1930s Hollywood is reevaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane.
This is Fincher's first film since the blockbuster Gone Girl which came in 2014. The filmmaker was set to helm the sequel to “World War Z” with star Brad Pitt returning, but the film was placed on hold by Paramount in February 2019. Fincher has moved to television in the interim, directing and producing for the Netflix series “Mindhunter” and “Love, Death & Robots” since 2016.
