Darren Aronofsky May Be Teaming With George Clooney For Sci-Fi Film Human Nature
Ever since Darren Aronofsky opted out of directing The Wolverine, there have been questions about what film he would make instead. The filmmaker has talked about a movie based on Noah's Ark, a movie called Machine Man, and has long been attached to The Tiger along with Brad Pitt, but nothing has been made official. Now, according to Vulture, yet another project has captured Aronofsky's interest.
According to the site, the Black Swan helmer has taken an interest in Human Nature, a fifteen year old spec script about a cryogenically frozen man. What's more, George Clooney is interested in starring. In the story, a frozen man wakes up in a world where humans are no longer the dominant species on Earth and have, instead, become pets of another species. Unnamed sources say that producer Akiva Goldsman "is currently budgeting the movie."
The article doesn't make mention of the project's tone, so I'm curious if this could be Aronofsky's first venture into comedy. While it could just as easily be a dystopian sci-fi horror movie, the concept is just silly enough that it could be worth a few laughs. Can't say that I'm not curious to know what Darren Aronofsky's version of humor is.
