Aronofsky, Pitt Team For A “Tiger”

After two failed attempts, Brad Pitt and Darren Aronofsky are trying to team again for the adventure thriller “The Tiger” at Focus Features reports Variety.

Based on John Vaillant’s upcoming non-fiction tome, the story takes place on the Siberian plain where humanity is encroaching on the tigers’ habitat — and one tiger turns on the intruders.

As townspeople are being hunted with an almost supernatural power, a conservationist game warden must face the tiger in a fight to the death. Guillermo Arriaga (“Babel,” “21 Grams”) will pen the script.

Pitt’s Plan B and Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures will produce and the project is being lined up as a possible starring vehicle for Pitt.
