Please, Cronenberg. Climb Across <i>This</i> Table

Here's a movie I really, really hope happens: Empire is reporting that David Cronenberg may direct a movie version of Jonathan Lethem's novel As She Climbed Across The Table.

The 1997 novel by the Motherless Brooklyn and The Fortress of Solitude writer may not be ideal mainstream movie fare, telling the story of a love triangle between two scientists and an artificial black hole created under laboratory conditions, but if anyone can make the funny, smart and occasionally intentionally oblique story work onscreen, it'd be someone of Cronenberg's caliber. My fingers are crossed this one really comes off.
