Capitalizing on his recent 'Wrestler' buzz, Darren Aronofsky is optimistic about his chances of swindling some cash out of a studio for his latest project, a biblical story centering around Noah, now that he has finally proven he can string together a few successful projects. After his six year delay between "Requiem for a Dream" and the extremely troubled "The Fountain," Aronofsky, with his latest project "The Wrestler" looking like it will be a surprise hit, is wasting no time attempting to get his current script green lit.
"I wrote it. Me and Ari Handel, the guy who worked on "The Fountain." It's a great script and its HUGE. And we are starting to feel out talent. And then we'll probably try and set it up...the budget is big. I mean, look...It's the end of the world and its the second most famous ship after the Titanic. So I'm not sure why any studio won't want to make it. It's a really cool project and I think it's really timely because it's about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what's going on on this planet."
Meanwhile, his film, "The Fighter," starring Mark Wahlberg sounds like it's on a bit of the backburner, according to the /Film interview.
