Lily Collins, Charles Dance, Tuppence Middleton, Arliss Howard, Ferdinand Kingsley, Jamie McShane, Joseph Cross, Sam Troughton, Toby Leonard Moore, Tom Burke, and Tom Pelphrey will also appear in the film.

Mank marks Fincher’s first feature since Fox’s Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. Fincher has primarily worked on television and digital shows since Gone Girl partnering with Netflix to direct series such as House of CardsMindhunter, and Love, Death & Robots.
