From David Fincher, the director of Gone Girl, Seven, and Fight Club comes Mank, a new film featuring a star-studded cast including Gary Oldman, Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, and more. The new film launches globally on Netflix this December 4.
Watch the trailer below:
Mank is a biographical film centering on Herman J. Mankiewicz, a social critic and an alcoholic who’s racing to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane for Orson Welles. It also features the struggles that he faced during the film’s production, leading to the release of the film.
The script of the film came from Jack Fincher, David Fincher’s father, who wrote the script in the 1990s. David wanted to produce the film back in 1997, after completing The Game, but it wasn’t only in July 2019 that the project was officially announced, 6 years after his father passed away. The film marks David Fincher’s first directorial feature film since 2014’s Gone Girl.
Mank stars Academy Award-winning actor Gary Oldman as Herman J. Mankiewicz. Joining him in the film are Amanda Seyfried, Lily Collins, Arliss Howard, Tom Pelphrey, Tom Burke, Sam Troughton, and more.
