Big news this week for comics lovers. Three graphic novel adaptations have found their top international directors.

Black Hole

David Fincher is attached to direct the eagerly anticipated adaptation of Charles Burns' "Black Hole," a '70s-set sci-fi about the spread of a horrifying STD among a group of teens in Seattle, for Brad Pitt's Plan B. Fincher is one of several directors who orbited the project, in talks since the mid-2000s.

Also on the genre front, Korean director Kim Jee-woon (the brutal "I Saw the Devil") will direct "Coward," an adaptation of Ed Brubaker's underworld crime graphic novel, and "Harry Potter" helmer David Yates is slated to direct "Who Is Jake Ellis?" for Fox, from Nathan Edmonson's espionage comic series.

While Brubaker adapted "Coward" himself, screenwriters for "Jake Ellis" and "Black Hole" are yet unknown, though Roger Avary and Neil Gaiman were once attached to pen "Black Hole."
