BLACK SWAN Writer Mark Heyman Shopping Facebook Stalker Pic XOXO; Darren Aronofsky to Produce

     June 24, 2011


Mark Heyman (Black Swan) had so much success with his last creepy/obsessive/possibly insane protagonist that the scribe is returning to familiar territory with his latest script. Heyman is currently circulating a “Facebook stalker” pic entitled XOXO around several Hollywood genres labels with Darren Aronofsky set to produce. Per 24 Frames, the script centers on a twentysomething male whose digital relationship with a female peer takes a turn from “Wow, this online dating thing is really cool” to “Wow, thanks to this online dating thing I now have a stalker.”

The report also claims that XOXO will not exist solely on Facebook but will make use of streaming video and other social media platforms as well so as to create a digital world that acts as an extension of the physical one (sound familiar?). In addition to XOXO, Heyman is also writing a teen-centric apocalyptic tale for director Marc Webb entitled Age of Rage. Moreover, he’s also developing a project called Machine Man which is described as being in the vein of Robocop as it centers on a man who undergoes a titanium body upgrade and becomes a target as a result.

    Every last one of those projects sound like disasters

  • Jumpdates

    Sounds like interesting ideas especially with the growing interest in the online virtual dating world.
    It would be interesting to develop a story around the free dating sites that are currently out there such as, and others. I can think of a few good ideas such as a ‘tron’ like story where you go into the virtual world of these dating sites and find yourself immersed in the sordid and yet exciting tales of what real fantasies lies behind the faces of all these online daters.
