LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Zodiac" David Fincher is attached to shoot "Black Hole," a horror romance about a group of high school students whose lives are drastically altered when they come in contact with a sexually transmitted disease called the "teen plague" or "the bug."

"Beowulf" writers Roger Avary and Neil Gaiman are adapting the Charlie Burns graphic novel for Paramount/MTV Films.

Fincher just wrapped "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," which Paramount is scheduled to release at the end of the year. He also has "Torso," "The Devil in the White City" and "The Killer" in development at the studio.
