The Hollywood Reporter brings news of a project that will unite author Neil Gaiman, screenwriter Roger Avary, and director Alexandre Aja. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Charles Burns, "Black Hole" is being described as a "horror romance" — and now I have a yearning desire to read this book!
"Roger Avery and Neil Gaiman are writing "Black Hole," a horror romance story that Alexandre Aja will direct for Paramount Pictures. MTV Films, Plan B and Kevin Messick are producing. "Black Hole" is a 12-issue comic book painstakingly written and illustrated by Charles Burns over a 10-year period that deals with fear of adulthood, sex and ostracism. When the work was finally completed last year, it was collected into a graphic novel, which garnered great acclaim and was in Entertainment Weekly’s top 10 works of fiction for the year. The story follows a group of high school students whose lives are altered drastically when they come in contact with a sexually transmitted disease called the "teen plague" or "the bug.""
