Based on the comic book...
David Fincher is heading back to the Black Hole. THR reports that Finger will direct the film based on Charles Burns' comic book for Brad Pitt's Plan B production shingle.
Fincher was previously attached to the project with Neil Gaiman and Rover Avary writing the script, but it ended up in development hell.
The film is set 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.
