Though he's currently hard at work on 'Noah,' it seems that Darren Aronofsky is lining up his next project, and it looks to be 'The General' - a bio-pic on America's first president. Currently Paramount is in negotiations to pick the film up for him, which would be his second picture in a row for the studio.
After struggling for years making films that only played to a limited audience, Darren Aronofsky broke through to the mainstream with the release of 'Black Swan.' It gave him the power to get a big budget film made at Paramount, and that film is 'Noah.' It now has a release date of March 28, 2014.
After the Success of 'Black Swan' it's nice to see that Darren Aronofsky is allowed to make a big budget film of his own choosing - especially after the numerous compromises that went into his still-pretty-great film 'The Fountain'. Now we've got word that his next film has locked down its star and shooting date.
