Gaiman, Avary, and Aja to Visit a "Black Hole"

by | March 8, 2006 | Comments

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.""

Neil Gaiman’s most recent movie was "MirrorMask," Mr. Avary penned the upcoming "Silent Hill," and Alex Aja’s "The Hills Have Eyes" comes out this Friday.
