Follows screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz's tumultuous development of Orson Welles' iconic masterpiece Ciudadano Kane (1941).
This is the second film to detail the process of creating 'Citizen Kane' (1941), following the semi-fictitious 'RKO 281' (1999) which starred John Malkovich as Herman J. Mankiewicz and Liev Schreiber as Orson Welles.
For most of December 2019, the film was shot Kember Campbell Ranch in Victorville, California where Herman J. Mankiewicz wrote 'Citizen Kane' (1941). Considering the ranch changed very little over the years, the location helped reflect the time period of the 1940s.
This is the second biopic for Netflix to cast Leven Rambin after 'The Dirt' (2019).
