Variety is reporting that Darren Aronofsky (The Black Swan) is set to direct and produce an Unforgiven-esque George Washington feature, The General.
Paramount is eyeing the project, from a script by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, under their first-look deal with Aronofsky, reports Variety:
Par is exclusively eyeing the project under its first-look deal with Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures banner. If the studio doesn’t close a deal in the next couple of days, others get a shot — and interest is expected to be high, with Aronofsky coming off the $329 million worldwide gross and awards success of “Black Swan.”
Details on the project are unavailable, apart from the Unforgiven-style comparison. Aronofsky will direct the film after he wraps his biblical feature Noah (scheduled for a March 28, 2014 release). Are you interested?
