David Cronenberg has been playing it relatively straight for the last few years, but a new project seems to harken back to the dark psychological horror of his directorial past. According to Pajiba, the Canadian helmer signed on to direct a film version of the Jonathan Lethem 1997 novel 'As She Climbed Across the Table.'

In the story, a man named Philip is deeply love with Alice; but Alice, a physicist, is obsessed with a portal to nothingness that she has created. Hence, Philip is about to lose Alice to nothing.
