Tinseltown is coming to Hotel Baker in March
Golden Globes winner and Oscar nominee director David Fincher (Gone Girl), will be bringing his crew for the upcoming Netflix noir thriller “The Killer” to the Hotel Baker and surroundings this March.
The Netflix production is expected to be in St. Charles for around 10 days beginning in early March.
Here’s the movie’s official logline:
A man solitary and cold, methodical and unencumbered by scruples or regrets, the killer waits in the shadows, watching for his next target. And yet the longer he waits, the more he thinks he’s losing his mind, if not his cool. A brutal, bloody and stylish noir story of a professional assassin lost in a world without a moral compass, this is a case study of a man alone, armed to the teeth and slowly losing his mind.
According to Rowena Salas, Hotel Baker’s General Manager and Co-Owner, filming began November 1 in Paris, followed by stints in Dominican Republic and Louisiana, with things wrapping up in Chicago/St. Charles.
Salas is naturally excited about the project.
“We are thrilled about the production coming to St. Charles and choosing Hotel Baker,” she said in an email interview. “It’s great news for the community and the Valley.”
Award-winning actor Michael Fasbender (of X-Men fame) plays the lead role, with Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton (Chronicles of Narnia), playing opposite.
The release date of the film has not yet been set.
