Fincher Falls Into A Black Hole

David Fincher is attached to direct the horror romance “Black Hole” for Paramount, MTV Films and Plan B Entertainment reports the trades.

Based on a 12-issue series turned graphic novel by Charlie Burns, the story revolves around a group of high school students whose lives are drastically altered when they come in contact with an incurable sexually transmitted disease called the “teen plague” or “the bug” which causes the sexually-active to develop horrific physical deformities – turning infected teens into social outcasts.

“Beowulf” scribes Roger Avary and Neil Gaiman were previous tapped to adapt the screenplay back in 2006 when Alexandre Aja was previously attached to direct.

Fincher (“Zodiac”) just wrapped “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” for Paramount and has “Torso,” “The Devil in the White City” and “The Killer” in development at the studio.
