BLACK SWAN writer Mark Heyman is set to adapt the upcoming big-screen adaptation SYNDROME E for Paramount and Indian Paintbrush, Deadline has announced.
SYNDROME E, the first in a series by Franck Thilliez, was originally published in France prior to Viking publishing it in the United States in 2012.

According to Viking, SYNDROME E "tells the story of beleaguered detective Lucie Hennebelle, whose old friend has developed a case of spontaneous blindness after watching an extremely rare-and violent-film from the 1950s. Embedded in the film are subliminal images so unspeakably heinous that Lucie realizes she must get to the bottom of it-especially when nearly everyone who comes into contact with the film starts turning up dead."
As of now, no director or cast is attached to the project.
