Oscar nominee David Fincher (Mank) is partnering with Netflix on Voir, a new documentary series of visual essays celebrating cinema.

Netflix, or at least, the Twitter account dedicated to its movies, had film fans buzzing on Tuesday after tweeting: “Something special is coming tomorrow from David Fincher…”

Fincher, who is executive producing “Voir” with “The Empty Man” director David Prior, has disclosed little about the upcoming project.

Writer Drew McWeeny, who is working on the project, wrote that the series of 10 to 30-minute essays are about “something that intrigues us or upsets us or that has to do with connection to the movies.”

Voir will premiere on November 13 at AFI Fest in Los Angeles before it lands on Netflix later.

 

Fincher is the award-winning filmmaker behind “Fight Club,” “Zodiac,” “The Social Network” and Madonna’s “Vogue” music video. He recently signed a four-year film deal with Netflix, having previously worked with the streamer on “House of Cards” and “Mindhunter.” As previously announced, Fincher is directing the Netflix movie “The Killer,” an assassin drama that’s said to star Michael Fassbender.

Some high-profile directors have been outspoken against Netflix and its nontraditional methods for theatrical distribution, but Fincher says he appreciates the freedom he’s been given.

“I’ve never been happier working at a place than I am at Netflix,” Fincher said about Mank. “It’s a nice thing that movies have a place to exist where you don’t necessarily have to shove them into spandex summer or affliction winter.”
