In the photos for the drama set before Citizen Kane hit the big screen, Oldman transforms into famed Hollywood screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz and Seyfried becomes starlet Marion Davies. The Netflix drama, written by Jack Fincher, follows the titular screenwriter as he rushes to get the Oscar-winning film’s screenplay to Orson Welles.
The first look photos, which Netflix released on social media platforms Saturday, also see Lily Collins as Rita Alexander, sharing a toast with Oldman’s Mankiewicz.
