Tilda Swinton has joined the cast for David Fincher’s next film, The Killer. The film will be an assassin thriller. Based on a graphic novel by Alexis Nolent, The Killer follows the assassin who “begins to have a psychological crisis in a world with no moral compass.”

News of Swinton’s involvement arrives via an interview with The Playlist, about her role in Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s hypnotic Memoria. Asked if she plays a role in The Killer, the actor says: “Well, yes, I think I am, yes. But that’s next year. That’s a whole other story!”

Filming for the upcoming feature is set to be released with Netflix. It was supposed to commence in Paris this autumn but has now been pushed back to 2022.

In the meantime, Swinton is also working with Wes Anderson on a Spain-set production, also featuring Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Scarlet Johansson, Bill Murray, and Adrien Brody.

The Souvenir Part II

Late last month, Tilda Swinton also appeared alongside her daughter, Honor Swinton Byrne, in the trailer for Joanna Hogg’s The Souvenir Part II (A24). The second part of the semi-autobiographical drama will see the pair reprise their roles as a young film student and her mother, with Richard Ayoade making an appearance as an insufferable filmmaker.
