It looks like the partnership of David Fincher and Netflix continues. This time the director of Gone Girl and creator of Mindhunter will be going animated with Deadpool director Tim Miller.
According to TVLine, Fincher and Miller have teamed up for an animated anthology series Love, Death and Robots. The series is described as a “collection of animated short stories that span the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres.”
The collection will have 18 episodes, which will range from five to 15 minutes in length. They each will have a unique animated style and come from a different team of filmmakers. Currently, we don’t know if there will be other big names attached to the teams or if it will be relative newcomers.
In a statement, Miller expressed excitement for the project, which will be aimed for an adult audience.
“It combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I’m so f—king excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation.”
There’s currently no release date for the project.
