David Fincher's next project Mank is slated to hit Netflix in October. The film, which is based on the conflict between screenwriter Herman J Mankiewicz and Orson Welles while working on the classic Citizen Kane, has Gary Oldman and Amanda Seyfried playing Herman and actress Marion Davies, respectively, while Tom Burke is essaying Welles.

In an interview with Collider, Amanda revealed that Fincher made her do a lot of takes, sometimes for an entire week. The Fight Club director, who is notorious for his perfectionism, has made many of his actors do multiple takes. Calling the experience "amazing," Amanda said the team was lucky to get the filming done before the quarantine began.

"I was part of scenes with tons of people in it, and we would do it for an entire week. I can’t tell you how many takes we did, but I would guess 200, maybe I could be wrong and could be way off. There are probably about nine or 10 different camera angles that had been on me at one point," she added.
