David Fincher is emerging once again to collaborate with Netflix on a new documentary series of visual essays which will celebrate cinema, titled 'Voir'. “Something special is coming tomorrow from David Fincher…” tweeted Netflix of the upcoming project.
Fincher is executive producing alongside director David Prior , and so far, has been tight lipped about the upcoming title. 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 our connection to the movies.”
We do however, have a premiere date of November 13 at AFI Fest in Los Angeles before it lands on Netflix on an undetermined date.

“I’ve never been happier working at a place than I am at Netflix,” Fincher told Variety in a cover story when he worked on 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.”
For those who aren't familiar with Fincher, he is responsible for some of cinema's biggest modern titles, including Fight Club, The social Network, Zodiac, and Madonna's Vogue music video. He also worked with Netflix more recently on Mindhunter and House Of Cards.
We have no insight as to who will star in the documentary or who else will be on the production roster, but will keep this page up to date for any updates that arise in the coming month. We're looking forward to discovering more of Fincher's world once it lands on Netflix at a later date.
