Darren Aronofsky is reportedly interested in David Weil’s sci-fi spec script “Moonfall” which has been shopped around this week. The story is described as a “Fargo”-like thriller set on the moon, giving the project a unique angle rather than the typical sci-fi story.
Aronofsky is one of several high-profile talents who has read and liked Weil’s script. He’s said to have had exploratory talks regarding the material, but has yet to commit to the project and is not officially attached to produce let alone direct.
Weil’s “Half Heard in the Stillness” was voted to the 2013 Black List of Hollywood’s most liked un-produced screenplays. That film deals with a young man dealing with reassimillating into the world following a decade of captivity in the basement of the child predator who abducted him. The recent disappearance of another local boy ties back into his case.
