It's hard for me to begrudge a director for probably making more for a one-day shoot than they've made for any of their actual movies.  That said, is someone ever going to get around to informing Jennifer Lopez that she's like 67 years old now?
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Darren Aronofsky To Direct 'Unforgiven' Style Pic About George Washington
Source: Playlist

Well, he's already set to put his own spin on a famed Bible story with "Noah," so why not American history? That's right, Darren Aronofsky is about get presidential in a movie that won't be your standard biopic.

Variety reports that the helmer is attached to produce and direct an untitled movie penned by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage. So what is it all about? Your guess is as good as ours, but apparently, the movie will be an "Unforgiven"-style look at the late, great president. And no, we don't know what that means either, but it appears it's one that Aronofsky is eager to set up, and it sounds kinda awesome. Paramount Pictures have first dibs on the project thanks a first look deal with the helmer, but if they don't pull the trigger this week, other studios will have a shot, and you can bet there will be a helluva lot of interest.

But even if a deal gets, whether this will be next remains to be seen. The helmer is not short on projects to choose from with the Jackie Kennedy story "Jackie," the half man/half robot pic "Machine Man" and the sci-fi tale "Human Nature" all brewing (and he was at one point attached to "Serena" with Angelina Jolie which is now being made by Susanne Bier with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawerence starring instead). But Aronofsky bringing his brand of directing to a story about George Washington? We're curious to say the least.

Darren Aronofsky In Talks For Fox Espionage Tale ‘Red Sparrow’
BY MIKE FLEMING JR | Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Back on dry ground after helming the Biblical film Noah, Darren Aronofsky is looking for what’s next. I’d been hearing rumblings he is interested in a George Washington project, but here’s a fresh deal in the works. Aronofsky is in early talks to develop to direct Red Sparrow, an adaptation of the Jason Matthews espionage novel. 20th Century Fox bought the book in a 7-figure deal after a spirited bidding battle involving multiple studios back in April for Film Rites‘ Steve Zaillian and Garrett Basch to produce with Chernin Entertainment. The book was published in June by Scribner.

The book is set in contemporary Russia, and state intelligence officer Dominika Egorova struggles to survive in the cast-iron bureaucracy of post-Soviet intelligence. Drafted against her will to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress in the service, Dominika is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers collide in a charged atmosphere of trade craft, deception, and inevitably, a sexual attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America’s valuable mole in Moscow. Dominika winds up seeking revenge against her soulless masters, and living a fatal double life after she is recruited by the CIA to ferret out a high-level traitor in Washington. She also hunts down a Russian illegal buried deep in the U.S. military and, against all odds, to return to Moscow as the new-generation penetration of Vladimir Putin’s intelligence service. There is topicality to the tale, given the Edward Snowden affair, and the dark themes and sexy female lead fit the Black Swan director’s wheelhouse. Aronofsky is repped by CAA.

Darren Aronofsky Adapting Futuristic ‘MaddAddam’ Book Trilogy As HBO Series
Source: Deadline
   
EXCLUSIVE: HBO has put in development drama series MaddAddam, executive produced by Oscar-nominated Black Swan helmer Darren Aronofsky through his Protozoa Pictures banner. The project, based on Margaret Atwood’s book trilogy Oryx and Crake (2003), Year Of The Flood (2009), and MaddAddam (2013), is being developed as a potential directing vehicle for Aronofsky. MaddAddam marks the first project to come out of the three-year first-look deal the filmmaker and his Protozoa Pictures inked with HBO in January.

The story in the MaddAddam books, part of Atwood’s self-described genre of “speculative fiction,” is set in the mid-21st century in a world where corporations have taken over for governments and the genetic modification of organisms is perversely ubiquitous. It centers on the events before and after a Waterless Flood that wipes out almost all of the world’s population and follows an extensive cast of characters, including those responsible for the apocalypse and those struggling to survive it. Producer Brandi-Ann Milbradt, who is engaged to Aronofsky, brought the project to Protozoa and will serve as executive producer alongside Aronofsky and his longtime collaborator, Protozoa Pictures president Ari Handel. Atwood serves as consulting producer. Aronofsky and his team are currently meeting with writers.

Aronofsky is coming off the success his most recent feature, biblical epic Noah, which has grossed $345M in worldwide box office. On the feature side, his Protozoa Pictures also has a deal with New Regency, also inked in January.
