Several years ago, director David Fincher was attached to make Black Hole, based on Charles Burns' graphic novel. However, the project fell apart in 2008, when screenwriters Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary left the project.

Black Hole is now back up and running with David Fincher returning to the helm and Brad Pitt producing through his Plan B company.

It isn't known if Plan B has a new screenwriter attached to adapt the property as of yet. Here's the official description of the graphic novel.

"The setting is Seattle during the '70's. A sexual disease, the 'bug,' is spreading among teenagers. Those who get it develop bizarre mutations - sometimes subtle. Story follows two teens, Keith & Chris as they get the bug. Their dreams and hallucinations - made of deeply disturbing symbolism merging sexuality and sickness - are a key part of the tale!"


The adaptation was originally set up at MTV Films, but it isn't known if the project has a studio home or not. David Fincher is currently directing Gone Girl, starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck.

Black Hole is in development . The film is directed by David Fincher.

    He's certainly got his plate full with Gone Girl set to come out next, year, followed by 20000 Leagues, Goon (hopefully), and now this. Sign me up for all four.
