As previously reported, Gary Oldman is playing the titular role in the David Fincher film.

The film will reportedly be shot in black and white, with production beginning in November.

The story will follow the screenwriter’s “tumultuous development of the script for Citizen Kane — which would go on to be considered one of the best films of all time — alongside director Orson Welles. Despite the Citizen Kane’s critical success, the script was the only part of the film to win an Oscar.”
