It’s been revealed that filmmaker David Fincher has just signed a four-year exclusive deal with Netflix. This means that we should see more Fincher movies coming to the streaming platform.
Fincher has already been doing a lot of work with Netflix over the years. He was a producer on House of Cards. The then went on to basically be the showrunner of Manhunter. He made that whole show really. It’s such as shame that’s been cancelled.
Fincher is now hard at work on his next movie which is going to be coming to Netflix pretty soon. That film is called Mank and stars Gary Oldman as Herman J. Mankiewicz – the man who wrote Citizen Kane. We’ve already done quite a few articles on Mank, which is one of our most anticipated movies of the year.
David Fincher will be working exclusively for Netflix for the next four years
It’s now been revealed that the filmmaker has just gone ahead and signed a four-year exclusive deal with the streaming platform. This means that any of the movies and TV shows he makes in the next four years will be coming to Netflix.
Here’s what Fincher told Premiere.fr (via The Playlist) in a recent interview about him signing an exclusive four-year deal with the streaming giants:
Yes, I have an exclusivity deal with [Netflix] for another four years… And depending on Mank’s reception, I’ll either go see them sheepishly asking them what I can do to redeem myself or take the attitude of the arrogant asshole who’ll require making other films in black and white. [Laughs] No, I’m here to deliver them ‘content’ — whatever it means— likely to bring them spectators, in my small sphere of influence.
