Flicker Over To Darren Aronofsky

Writer/director Darren Aronofsky told SCI FI Wire that he's still developing a movie based on Theodore Roszak's cult novel "Flicker"

The story follows a film student who discovers that a hack filmmaker's B movies contain subliminal messages, which are part of a plot to eradicate life on Earth.

Aronofsky says "We've developed a screenplay, and it's not going to be my next film. It's sitting there. We don't know what we'll do with it yet.. I like the idea of subliminals in movies and stuff. So it was a lot of good themes in that".

He confirmed he'll do either a big-budget fantastical biblical epic next, or a small, intimate reality-based film. He's still developing the India-set supernatural thriller "Song of Kali" and the samurai manga "Lone Wolf and Cub".
