Darren Aronofsky In Talks To Adapt “Red Sparrow” Novel

August 15, 2013

Darren Aronofsky is looking for his next project after directing the Biblical film, Noah. Rumor is that he’s interested in a future George Washington project (The General), but that film may have to wait.

Aronofsky is in negotiations to direct RED SPARROW, an adaptation of the Jason Matthews espionage novel. 20th Century Fox bought the book in a 7-figure deal after a bidding battle involving multiple studios back in April. The book was published in June by Scribner.

Red Sparrow is set in post Soviet Russia, and centres around a female intelligence operative called Dominika Egorova, who is trained as a “sparrow”, or honey trap specialist. She finds herself drawn towards the CIA agent she is assigned to, and they end up working together to uncover a double agent.

I must say, after the success of Lincoln, I’d rather see Darren Aronofsky tackle the George Washington film.
