The studio acquired the rights to the book, and the pic will be produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment and Alexandra Milchan.

Allesandro Camon has been roped in to pen the script, reports Variety.

The plot of the movie revolves around 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.

Nolent works for Ubisoft, one of France’s biggest videogame companies.

The novel, originally published in France in 1988 by Casterman, was illustrated by Luc Jacamon. It made its US debut as a 10-issue series published by Archaia Studio Press.

“The Killer” will be the third Paramount pic that Fincher will be helming. He has already directed “Zodiac” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” for the studio. (ANI)
