According to a report by the Hollywood Reporter, David Fincher is set to release a new biopic about Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz. The film, currently titled Mank, is set to premiere on Netflix, and will be in black and white to match the 40’s classic cinema vibe. The script was written by Fincher’s father, who passed away in 2003.

Mank is scheduled to start shooting in November, starring Gary Oldman as the lead. Oldman most recently won the Academy Award in 2018 for his role in The Darkest Hour, despite serious allegations of domestic abuse surfacing.

This will be Fincher’s first project since his 2014 massive success Gone Girl.
