Darren Aronofsky and Brad Pitt to go 'Tiger Hunting' with the writer of 'Babel'?

So it seems, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

Guillermo Arriaga, the writer behind Brad Pitt's fractured drama "Babel" as well as indie darling "Amores perros," is reteaming with Pitt for "The Tiger," a drama that Darren Aronofsky is developing as a potential Pitt vehicle. The project will be a co-production between Focus Features and Random House's film division.

The story, based on an upcoming nonfiction book by John Vaillant, centers on an animal activist who must protect the small Siberian town he is in when a tiger begins attacking its inhabitants.

Pitt and Aronofsky, who has not yet committed to directing "Hunting," have been developing the project under the radar since last year.

UTA-repped Arriaga's other credits include dramas "21 Grams" as well as "The Burning Plain," which he also directed.

Aronofsky is producing with his Protozoa partners Mark Heyman and Ari Handel. Pitt is producing via his Plan B shingle along with the company's Jeremy Kleiner and Dede Gardner.

-This is definitely another film to keep track of...thoughts?


  1. brad pitts on a run like no other right now so this is exciting, hes working with the best directors.
    funny that theres this and the jolie aronofsky project going around to

  2. I hated The Burning Plain and don't really love Arriaga's work in general, but I think Aronofsky might reign him in, if that makes sense.
