Darren Aronofsky being sought out for Maleficent and Moses

Ever since Darren Aronofsky left THE WOLVERINE, he's been rumored to be up for a million different projects. I was led to believe that HUMAN NATURE starring George Clooney would be Aronofsky's next, but there's been no confirmation on it.

Since it looks like his directing window is wide open, Disney and Warner Bros. are after Aronofsky to helm some of their projects.

First up is MALEFICENT for Disney. Now that Tim Burton is off the project, the studio needs someone else for the job. The live action film has Angelina Jolie attached to star as the villain. On the other hand, Warner Bros. wants Aronofsky for MOSES. Currently there are two MOSES films trying to get off the ground. Dan Lin (SHERLOCK HOLMES) is producing on this one. Fox is the other studio working the MOSES angle, but there are no details on that.

Which one should he go with? Either would be interesting. The ball is in Aronofsky's court. He could take one or the other...or ditch them both.

Extra Tidbit: I really wouldn't mind him taking a break to write something of his own.

Not fox!

He's too good for Fox. I hope he shuts them down.
Fox doesn't deserve to make money off of his genius.

My first pick would be the tidbit. He's got the time, he's got the skills, and my favorite of his work came from scripts he wrote (though all his movies are great).

Having said that, I think he could definitely do something with the Moses story. I wouldn't be against Maleficent if it wasn't being made by Disney. I'd love to see Aronofsky put his spin on a fairy tale, as Black Swan and The Fountain are both rather fantastical in ways. But Disney would ruin things by insisting on a PG (13 if

Old Testament Answer

My dradle is telling me Aronofsky has a special place in his heart for the story of Moses.

So I decided not to wear my green sweater tomorrow. Instead I might be wearing either a striped one or a blue... Or neither. Might actually be something altogether different. Nothing is decided! Same as with aronofsky

Have they even approached him with offers. Otherwise this news is totally irrelevant what other people want as long as he hasn't expressed interest himself. That last paragraph in the article cracks me up! :-)

Wow. Imagine a Moses film by Aronofsky. But, I'd rather him get down to work on NOAH
