Darren Aronofsky’s last film, Noah, saw him unleash a biblical flood upon the world, and it looks like one of his next films could take him all the way to the moon. The visionary director is reportedly circling around the hot new sci-fi spec script of the moment, Moonfall written by David Weil, though he is not the only interested party.
According to the Wrap, Moonfall has much of Hollywood all in a tizzy. As the script makes the rounds to various studios, New Regency is one of the players involved. Aronofsky has a first look deal in place with them, and he is one of numerous high-profile filmmakers who has read Weil’s story and has expressed interested in producing the project. So if Moonfall winds up at New Regency, and if Aronofsky maintains his initial curiosity and has the time in a busy schedule, it’s possible this could go down.
