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.
