The story sounds highly interesting to me, "a mysterious, sexually transmitted plague descends on the teenagers of Seattle in the 1970s", and the comic book is described to "[transcend] its genre by deftly exploring a specific American cultural moment in flux and those who are caught in it."
Well, honestly, everything just elevates to a level that I find interesting, once David Fincher is attached, because I know that he will make sure to explore the themes of the story to the fullest -- and not for a second do we have to worry it may be poorly executed. Also, on its Wikipedia site, "Black Hole" is described as evoking "the feel and atmosphere of classic 70s teen horror films like The Last House On The Left, Carrie and Halloween". Sure sounds like fanastic Fincher material!
The mere overdose of projects that are in talks makes me a little cautious though, since there is no certainly which of these many projects will really move forward and ever make it into production. I guess now with the writer's strike being over, Fincher will be able to work on the development of several scripts parallel -- and then it will be a matter of circumstances, which film will first be greenlit, and which one Fincher feels most confident about and most drawn to directing.
Let's see what's coming. -- Thanks to Thiago, Angus and Kevin for digging this up. Here's a few links to follow up on the news:
