Paramount Pictures has acquired graphic novel "The Killer" and will develop it as a directing vehicle for David Fincher, reports Variety.

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 videogame 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.

"The Killer" puts Fincher in line to make his third recent film for Paramount, where he helmed "Zodiac" and recently wrapped "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Latter film stars Pitt, with whom Fincher first worked on "Fight Club."
Never heard of the comic, but the story sounds good... And David Fincher is a pretty ****ing brilliant director, so this should be good.
This sounds familiar ... like the Hong Kong movie the killer with chow yun fat ?!?! Anyone ??

David Fincher doing ANOTHER movie about trying to catch a serial killer? First se7en, then zodiac and now this?

Oh well, at least he's good at it so I can't complain.
