Darren Aronofsky in Talks to Adapt RED SPARROW Novel

While prepping for his new biblical epic "Noah", not to be confused with Ridley Scott's "Exodus", Darren Aronofsky is busy with his next potential project. The acclaimed director is in talks to adapt Jason Matthews' spy novel "Red Sparrow".

Fox has acquired the rights to the book back in April, apparently winning a bidding war against other studios for the popular book. The book centers on intelligence officer Dominika Egorova who is forced against her will to become a "Sparrow", a seductress who attempts to get information out of U.S. counterparts. Sounds a bit like "Alias" with Jennifer Gardner. I wouldn't mind seeing her star in this picture. Just saying.

Steven Zallian is currently on as a producer, but at this time it's unknown if he will also be penning the script. Having penned such amazing screenplays as "Gangs of New York", "American Gangster", and "Moneyball", I certainly have confidence in his work and hope he does in fact pen this screenplay as well.

Do you like the sound of "Red Sparrow"? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
