Gus Van SantHere's a team from the dark side: Gus Van Sant and Bret Easton Ellis are joining forces to write a film about the 2007 suicide deaths of popular artists Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake.

The movie will be based on a 2008 Vanity Fair article, 'The Golden Suicides,' written by Nancy Jo Sales. That article recounts the downfall of the artists, who were stars of the Los Angeles and New York multi-media art world. Duncan was a writer, filmmaker and computer-game creator, who at one point had a two-film deal with Fox Searchlight and had written and directed a pilot for Oxygen Media. Blake created "lush and moody 'moving paintings,' shape-shifting innovations mixing abstract painting and digital film."
