Darren Aronofsky Won't Fly To 'Red Sparrow,' 'Attenberg' Director Athina Rachel Tsangari Lines Up 'Chevalier' & More

If there’s anything to be learned from his filmography, it’s that Darren Aronofsky marches to the beat of his own drum. It seems we might have jinxed the “Noah” filmmaker last August when we reported that he finally lined up a gig—an adaptation of the bona-fide spy novel “Red Sparrow”—instead of dropping one, which has seemed to be his m.o. over the past couple of years, the biblical epic aside. THR reports Aronofsky has moved on from the project after negotiating with 20th Century Fox since last fall. The studio still intends to move forward with the project and Aronofsky is still on the hunt for his follow-up to “Noah.”

Darren Aronofsky Red Sparrow

If there’s anything to be learned from his filmography, it’s that Darren Aronofsky marches to the beat of his own drum. It seems we might have jinxed the “Noah” filmmaker last August when we reported that he finally lined up a gig—an adaptation of the bona-fide spy novel “Red Sparrow”—instead of dropping one, which has seemed to be his m.o. over the past couple of years, the biblical epic aside. THR reports Aronofsky has moved on from the project after negotiating with 20th Century Fox since last fall. The studio still intends to move forward with the project and Aronofsky is still on the hunt for his follow-up to “Noah.”

It’s been three years since we first saw Athina Rachel Tsangari’s “Attenberg,” which we were big fans of, but “The Slow Business of Going” director will soon begin shooting her follow-up. The Greek film site Flix reports Tsangari will begin shooting “Chevalier” with a script co-written by her and the writer of “Dogtooth” and “Alps,Efthimis Filippou. The film will follow a group of men stranded out at sea on a yacht who “kill their time playing a game they devise called Chevalier, an entertaining and highly competitive game. No intends to get off the yacht without being crowned its winner.” This will mark her third feature-length film and her shortest gap between films—a decade separated her debut and sophomore features.

Though the “Kon-Tiki” duo Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg will shoot their giant Hollywood debut, “Pirates Of The Caribbean 5,” at the end of the year, the filmmakers already have an eye to follow it up with a more intimate and smaller-scale picture. Per Deadline, the directing partners have nabbed the U.S. rights to remake the Norwegian thriller “Amnesia.” The original Nin Bull Robsahm-helmed film “cents on writers Thomas and Kathrine who spend a weekend on a remote island. After a fight in which Thomas hits his head and loses his memory, Kathrine sees an opportunity to escape the violent relationship.” The duo likely won’t get to the project until after 'Pirates' is finished.

And finally, French site Les in Rocks reports “Tarnation” director Jonathan Caouette will direct a Marianne Faithfull documentary. Apparently the British singer and actress—who dated Mick Jagger during the late '60s—specifically requested Caouette to helm the documentary, albeit through producer Francois Ravard. No word on when production on the film is to be completed but Caouette tells the site that the film looks to contain a mixture of archival footage alongside current interviews alongside more experimental fare.
