On the heels of signing on to direct the 'Wolverine' sequel, the writer-director has cut a two-year overall deal with Fox for his Protozoa Pictures.
On the heels of signing on to direct the Wolverine sequel, Darren Aronofsky has cut a two-year overall deal with Fox for his Protozoa Pictures. Aronofsky will develop and produce projects for Fox proper and Fox Searchlight, with The Wolverine being the first in the arrangement.
Hugh Jackman will again star in the Christopher McQuarrie-penned project, which will begin production in April.
Like Danny Boyle, Aronofsky has developed a tight relationship with Searchlight, which released The Wrestler in 2008 and will release his psychological thriller Black Swan Dec. 3.
“Darren’s vision has brought audiences some of the most original and memorable stories and characters in recent motion picture history,” said Fox Searchlight co-presidents Steve Gilula and Nancy Utley. “We at Fox witnessed this first hand with his work on The Wrestler, and Black Swan, and now, on The Wolverine.”
