Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary Depart ‘Black Hole’

It seems that David Fincher coming on a project turned two writers off the film. According to MTV Splash Page, the Beowulf writing team of Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary have left the graphic novel adaptation, Black Hole.

Apparently the duo left the project after director David Fincher became involved with the film.

"Once they got David Fincher on," Gaiman said, "David explained his process consisted of having over ten drafts, done over and over, and Roger and I were sort of asked if we wanted to, if we were interested in doing that. And we definitely weren't."

Fincher still has Gaiman and Avary's latest draft, but it is uncertain where Fincher will proceed from there.

"So we'll wait and see what happens," he said. "I just hope whatever happens, it's faithful to Black Hole."

Black Hole is in development .

      If Fincher had put more faith in his writers in the past he would have never developed such a reputation. Now he lost two extremely talented writer's.
