Darren's ark

When a director like Darren Aronofsky is in between projects, a storm cloud of speculation descends upon all of us and basically devours anything in its path. That's because he's a visionary, and anything he touches turns into amazing. He recently spoke to the Guardian from a hotel in the Romanian mountains, where he's off contemplating the creation of the cosmos, about his next project, or, for accuracy's sake, an 'upcoming project', having to do with a certain builder of arks:

"Noah was the first person to plant vineyards and drink wine and get drunk. It's there in the Bible - it was one of the first things he did when he reached land. There was some real survivor's guilt going on there. He's a dark, complicated character."

That is correct, sir. Aronofsky's several drafts into a a script about the biblical character Noah, which he supposedly conceived of before PI. When he was 13, a poem he wrote about "the end of the world through Noah's eyes" won a competition, and since then he's had a deep interest in the character. Even the sentence 'the end of the world through Noah's eyes' manages to take a story that I've always percieved as being somewhat of a children's tale, and turn it into something dark and apocalyptic that Aronofsky could probably direct the hell out of. Imdb has his next projects listed as the ballerina thriller BLACK SWAN and the boxing drama THE FIGHTER, with Damon and Wahlberg, but this one looks like it should make its way onto his filmography at some point. I'm still hoping he'll direct FLICKER, as he once said he would. The article talks about other things Aronofsky as well, like what he had planned for the Batman franchise and of course, THE FOUNTAIN.
