Fincher gets sucked into ‘Black Hole’

fincher01.jpgMastermind director David Fincher looks like he’ll be more productive than ever. Known for being sporadic in his film making, he’s got The Curious Case of Benjamin Button coming out of the shoot only a year after Zodiac, and now, he’s just signed on to direct an adaptation of the cult comic “Black Hole”.

Our friends at Cinematical are reporting that Fincher will helm the piece penned by Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary.

Black Hole, written by Charles Burns and released in single issues from 1995 to 2005, tells the story of a sexually transmitted disease that runs rampant through the suburbs of 1970s Seattle. It’s art is dark and trenchant, so Fincher is a perfect choice for bringing it to life on the big screen.

It’s exciting to see Fincher keeping a steady stream of projects, especially if it means bringing Charles Burns’s work to a larger audience. We’ll definitely keep an eye on this one and keep the Reject Nation posted.
