Today brought a ton of great news that’s been building for awhile! Publishers Weekly published the announcement that film rights for Black Hole Sun are being packaged by Lorenzo di Bonaventura Pictures! Lorenzo di Bonaventura has produced several huge hits in the last few years, including STARDUST, RED, SALT, and TRANSFORMERS. Their first film was one of my favorites, CONSTANTINE. There’s more info about the company on their IMDB profile.
So does that mean that a Black Hole Sun movie is coming soon to a theatre near you? Not that I want to be a wet blanket, but no. The process is in its infancy with almost every detail still to be worked out. If this were a relationship, it would be at the hand-holding stage. Engagement and marriage are still a long way off.
Still, it’s fun to think about what the story would look like on the screen. How would Mars be depicted? What do the Draeu look like? Who would play Durango? Vienne? The Queen? Hmm. Hmm. Hmm.
