"Black Flies" Script Entrusted in Todd Kessler's Hands



Paramount Pictures has hired Todd Kessler to write "Black Flies" script, adapting from the Shannon Burke's novel.

Setting out to bring up its new project of "Black Flies", Paramount Pictures has appointed Todd Kessler to pen the film's script based on Shannon Burke's novel of the same title, so The Hollywood Reported has reported.

Likely to stay true to the story in the novel, pic will revolve around the experience a young man has when he becomes an emergency medical technician in Harlem as a temporary stop before he enters medical school. Darren Aronofsky is tapped to direct while also seats as producer along with his Protozoa partner Eric Watson and Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

An Emmy-nominated writer, Kessler is known to be the man behind the scripts of several small screen features. He has written some episodes of "Providence" as well as "The Sopranos" before becoming the regular writer for Michael Mann's TV series of "Robbery Homicide Division."
