Black Hole (D: Famuyiwa)

Rick Famuyiwa, best known for directing the celebrated coming-of-age movie Dope, has signed on to write and direct Black Hole, New Regency and Plan B’s adaptation of the graphic novel by Charles Burns.

Plan B and New Regency’s Arnon Milchan are set to produce the film. New Regency will finance the project.

The move kickstarts a project that has been in development on and off since 2005, when it was to have been adapted by horror director Alexandre Aja. Neil Gaiman and Pulp Fiction co-writer Roger Avery developed it for a time and the project was for years set up at Paramount with David Fincher attached to direct.

Set in the Pacific Northwest during the 1970s, Hole follows a group of high schoolers who contract a mysterious, apparently sexually transmitted disease known as "the Bug.” As the syndrome causes physical mutations, turning the teens into something else, the community is left to deal with the fallout.

I got excited about a remake with V.I.N.C.E.N.T and B.O.B.

Right there with you TGM ... Really excited when I clicked, but disappointed this isn't what I was expecting.

Hasn't the sexually transmitted disease as a monster been done already? Also, given that plot point, is Black Hole an appropriate title?

This could be a seriously creepy, fucked-up movie.

Or it could be a disaster.

The graphic novel is something I think could be really difficult to capture on film.
