During a Q&A for "The Fountain" in Atlanta, Director Darren Aronofsky talked with a handsome producer and the cadre of boys from C.H.U.D. about his next project - an English-language biblical epic.
"It's something I've wanted to do for a long time. Before Pi. Probably ten years ago, I had an idea. Actually, I wrote a poem about it when I was in 7th grade. I won this award for it -- my first writing award. So it's a story from the Bible that kind of stuck with me" says Aronofsky.
He added "About ten years ago I was at a museum that featured an exhibit that reminded me of it. So we've been trying to crack it for a while, and we finally figured out a direction."
As for his "Lone Wolf and Cub" project? "Paramount never got the rights. And we developed a script, but now the rights don't exist".
