Last night brought bad news from Paramount for Friday the 13th fan looking forward to the long-delayed reboot (or good news for those not wanting it to happen). But it also gave Darren Aronofsky fans something to get hyped about. We finally have a date for the director’s next project.
Darren Aronofsky is getting ready to head into production on his new untitled drama, the highly-anticipated follow-up to his incredibly divisive Noah. If you weren’t a fan of Aronofsky’s biblical blockbuster, the director’s latest project sounds like a darkly intimate return to form, boasting Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem in leading roles. As Aronofsky prepares to begin filming his new dramatic thriller this summer, a few more cast members are in talks to join the roster, including Domhnall Gleeson and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Of all the movies-that-could-have-been, Darren Aronofsky’s Wolverine and Batman movies are two of the more curious unmade projects. Before Christopher Nolan rebooted the Batman franchise and inspired a slew of gritty comic book adaptations, Aronofsky was briefly attached to helm a Dark Knight movie based on Frank Miller’s Year One. Much has been written about the project, and in a rare new interview, Miller himself explains what it might have been and why it was never made.
If you’re a Jennifer Lawrence fan, lately you pretty much had to settle for one of three types of movies: Hunger Games, X-Men or David O. Russell films. That’s all well and good (and has led to two Oscar wins), but with the Hunger Games franchise over and X-Men winding down, we’re also excited to start seeing Lawrence spread her wings. To wit: the actress is set to star alongside Javier Bardem in Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming thriller.
Just because he’s now the host of The Celebrity Apprentice doesn’t mean Arnold Schwarzenegger is throwing in the towel on his Hollywood comeback. (Thank goodness.)
It looks like Darren Aronofsky has found his next leading actress. According to Variety, Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in Aronofsky’s next untitled project. And here begins the guessing game for who Lawrence will play for the Black Swan director.
Channing Tatum, Hollywood’s most likable leading man, and Darren Aronofsky, one of the film industry’s most interesting filmmakers, are joining forces to make an Evel Knievel biopic. That’s a combination of names and subject matter that we never thought we’d see in the same sentence, but if Tatum wants to jump over buses on a motorcycle and if Aronofksy wants to film him doing it, we’re buying a ticket.

Just this morning, Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’ picked up a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song, so you might not want to count his biblical epic out of the Oscar race just yet. In the meantime, if you were curious about what the director plans to do next, we have a potential answer: Aronofsky is attached to direct ‘The Good Nurse,’ based on the true crime novel of the same name about a prolific serial killer who exploited his career as a nurse to murder as many as 300 patients.
