Rick Famuyiwa To Write and Direct Netflix Movie ‘Black Hole’

Rick Famuyiwa, best known for directing 2015’s Dope, will write and direct Black Hole, a live-adaptation of Charles Burn’s graphic novel.

Black Hole follows a group of high school students who contract a sexually transmitted disease known as “the bug.” The disease causes physical mutation, turning the high schoolers into something else while the community deals with the repercussions.  The story is set in the Pacific Northwest during the 1970s.

New Regency and Plan B will be backing the project, and have teamed up for Oscar-winning films 12 Years a Slave and The Big Short. The development for the live-action has been underway since 2005 when it was then being adapted by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) and director David Fincher (Fight Club). As Famuyiwa directs, New Regency’s Arnon Milchan will produce the film.
