A few months ago, comic book fans and moviegoers were excited when Darren Aronofsky was named director of “Wolverine 2″. Would this be Aronofsky’s “The Dark Knight”? Would this be Aronofsky’s crossover to a mainstream audience? Well, no. Aronofsky dropped out of the project citing family issues that would get in the way of the production. Personally, I think Aronofsky was put off by not having final cut on the project.
Vulture is reporting the director of last year’s surprise hit, “Black Swan”, will helm a fifteen-year-old screenplay called “Human Nature” written by screenwriter Jeff Welsh. It is also reported that George Clooney is soon to be attached to this project as the lead. The story of “Human Nature” is somewhat vague but it follows a man who is cryogenically frozen and years later when he wakes up from a long sleep, he finds a new world where humans are now pets for an alien species. Sounds chilling!
From the looks of things, Warner Bros seems to be the studio behind Darren Aronofsky’s next feature. This project sounds interesting and of course, I look forward to any Darren Aronofsky film. The man has yet to let me down.
