Paramount & Darren Team Up in Black Flies



Paramount Pictures has made a preemptive acquisition of the Shannon Burke novel "Black Flies"

Paramount Pictures is preparing the things related with "Black Flies." The studio is in talks with Darren Aronofsky to direct the Shannon Burke novel, with Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Eric Watson, Aronofsky's partner in Protozoa, to direct.

Based on the novel of the same name, "Black Flies" centers on a young man who becomes an emergency medical technician in Harlem, a temporary stop before he enters medical school. There, he experiences a range of crises and stressful misadventures, including a mentor who has been numbed to the point that he makes a wrong decision in a life-and-death situation.

In the meantime, Paramount is still looking for the screenwriter to adapt the book under the supervision of Aronofsky.
