Adam Mckay's serial killer film, starring Robert Pattinson and Robert Downey Jr., has been cancelled by Netflix.

Netflix is no longer moving forward with Average Height, Average Build. 

According to Deadline, the film starred Robert Pattinson as a serial murderer who hires a lobbyist (Amy Adams) to modify legislation that would make it easier for him to commit murder.  

According to the official synopsis, Robert Downey Jr. would "play a retired cop who refuses to give up on the murders, 

and the killer attempts to prevent him from dogging his trail now that he's hung up his gun."  

The serial killer transforms himself into a celebrity, a Mr. Smith. Goes to Washington to hide his genuine goals." 

The cast of the picture, which also included Danielle Deadwyler, Forest Whitaker, and Dan Matteucci, was announced earlier this year.  

Production was scheduled to begin in late summer or early fall, but was likely pushed back due to WGA or SAG-AFTRA strikes. 

The budget was estimated to be approximately $150 million, which would be more than quadruple the price of McKay's 2021 Netflix movie Don't Look Up.
