Side Effects, Rooney Mara
While the sequel to “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” may not be moving forward any time soon (read, ever), bffs David Fincher and Rooney Mara have found a way to move forward together. But this time, it’s an entirely different project. The director and actress are circling “Red Sparrow,” an espionage book that’s being adapted by Eric Singer, the screenwriter of “American Hustle.” 20th Century Fox, who are distributing Fincher’s next film, “Gone Girl,” are currently in talks with Singer to adapt the spy thriller by Jason Matthews.

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.”

While nerds lament what could have been with "The Wolverine" had Darren Aronofsky directed, contemplate what he might have done with "Man Of Steel" (he was apparently a finalist to helm the movie) and shed a tear for HBO's "Hobgoblin" which the network dropped, it looks like there's some news that doesn't involve him not doing something. With "Noah" presumably heading into its last leg before hitting theaters next spring, the filmmaker seems to be lining up some new gigs and we may get to see Aronofsky take a stab at the spy genre.
