    Aronofsky's Protozoa Options Demon Novel - ShockTillYouDrop.com

    The screen rights to Daryl Gregory's "Pandemonium" have been secured by Protozoa Pictures, the production outfit of Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan).

    Published in 2008, the story went like this (a synopsis from the publisher): A world like our own in every respect...save one: Beginning in the 1940's, random acts of possession begin to occur. Ordinary men, women, and children are seized by entities that seem to spring from the depths of the collective unconscious—pop-culture avatars that some call demons.

    When Del Pierce was five years old, he was possessed by the entity called the Hellion. Twenty-three years later it's back, trapped inside his head and clamoring to get out. He needs an exorcism, by any means necessary.

    The answers may lie in a handful of golden-age comics, a series of demon-created paintings, and his own childhood memories.

    Now, "Pandemonium" is reportedly being groomed as a television project. Gregory himself wrote, via his blog, "This is just an option, the first step in a staircase of a million steps, and options that make it all the way to the small or large screen are the exception rather than the rule. The rare exception, I've been told. So don't get too excited, Mom."

    He's right. Fans of the novel shouldn't get too excited yet. Aronofsky has been piling up the work since he dropped the sequel to Wolverine, including an HBO project called Hobgoblin - which sounds "horror-esque," but it's not - and Noah.

    Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’ Aims To Shoot Spring 2012 As Paramount Comes Aboard With New Regency > The Playlist

    Well, the movie getting closer to getting made as Deadline reveals that Paramount is now officially on board pay half the bills. But that’s not all, the movie is now on the fast track to shoot next spring.

    While the exact details of the scope and scale of Aronofsky’s film are still somewhat under wraps, the helmer previously described in broad strokes what he was planning to do. “It’s a great script and it’s huge. And we’re starting to feel out talent. And then we’ll probably try and set it up… It’s the end of the world and it’s the second most famous ship after the Titanic. So I’m not sure why any studio won’t want to make it…It’s a really cool project and I think it’s really timely because it’s about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what’s going on on this planet,” he said. “So I think it’s got these big, big themes that connect with us. Noah was the first environmentalist. He’s a really interesting character. Hopefully they’ll let me make it. Noah was the first person to plant vineyards and drink wine and get drunk. It’s there in the Bible – it was one of the first things he did when he reached land. There was some real survivor’s guilt going on there. He’s a dark, complicated character.”

    First Volume of Graphic Novel Version of Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’ Available in Europe; See Pages and a Trailer

    This gallery, via publisher Le Lombard, features the cover and the first few pages of the book. (In French, sadly.) The 72-page book is available from the publisher at that link, for €15.95.


    This is a slightly longer version of the book trailer that we presented back in February. That one has been pulled, so this is the best way to get a look at the book for now, short of buying it.
    No word on a US release yet, as far as I know.

    ‘Black Swan’ Scribe Mark Heyman’s Darren Aronofsky-Produced Thriller ‘XOXO’ Finds Home At Lionsgate > The Playlist

    A recent addition to the Aronofsky stable has been screenwriter Mark Heyman (”Black Swan”), who’s now teaming with Lionsgate for his latest script, “XOXO,” a Facebook-relationship thriller surely hoping to emulate the success of “The Social Network” and “Catfish.” The story is described as the digital age’s “Fatal Attraction” and follows a young executive on-the-rise, who’s engaged, but begins an online fling with a woman on Facebook, and things take a deadly twist.

    No helmer is in place just yet but Heyman already has plans of “constructing the digital interactions [on Facebook] in stylized visual sequences” to light up the screen. Aronofsky supports his protégé here as a producer alongside Michael London (”Sideways”) through their Protozoa Pictures and Groundswell shingles, respectively.

    The Variety article also reminds us that Heyman and Aronofsky are still developing their adaptation of “Machine Man,” the online serial by Max Barry which follows a tech engineer as he begins replacing parts of his body with titanium upgrades of his own design. But before that, Aronofsky plans to board his long-gestating dream project “Noah” next year.

    Darren Aronofsky To Direct Video For Metallica/Lou Reed Track “Iced Honey” > The Playlist

    In case you haven’t heard, the aging metal band and elder cantankerous Velvet Underground frontman have collaborated on a new two-disc, ninety minute opus Lulu. The concept album is based on the plays by Frank Wedekind about a stripper turned social-climber turned prostitute, and yes, it’s apparently as ear-rapingly terrible as all that suggests. Oh, are we being too harsh? Have a listen to “Iced Honey” yourself below, as it’s the song that will be getting turned into a video.

    Lars Ulrich, who has admitted losing sleeping over “Kill Bill,” won’t **** up again with another filmmaker and is excited at the opportunity to be working with Aronofksy. “As if making a record with Lou Reed is not enough, now I get to make a video with Darren Aronofsky, who has been among my very favorite filmmakers since his first movie, ‘Pi,’ ” he said, probably after looking the guy up on IMDB.

    But at the very least, this thing will probably look great. Aronofsky is bringing his regular collaborator, Matthew Libatique, to take on director of photography duties. So expect some tracking shots of Lou Reed from directly behind his head. “Iced Honey” will shoot in the San Francisco Bay area, and it will be turned around fast, as it’s expected to premiere later this month. We have to admit, we’re curious, in a watching-a-car-crash sort of way. Aronofsky+Metallica+Lou Reed…what could possibly go wrong?

    Back-To-Back Terrence Malick Movies Means No ‘Noah’ For Christian Bale, Will Michael Fassbender Take Over?

    With Christian Bale taking on two Terrence Malick movies in 2012, "Lawless" and "Knight of Cups" which are shooting back-to-back, it made the prospect of him appearing in Darren Aronofsky's dream project "Noah" all the more unlikely. Well, now it's official as Variety confirms his exit, but reveals another intriguing name as possibility to take over.

    According to the trade, the rising Michael Fassbender has discussed the movie with Darren Aronofsky and while no formal offer has been made, he's currently available for the movie which shoots next spring. But before everyone gets all hot and bothered there is something to consider: $130 million. That's the pricetag of the movie Paramount and New Regency are tag teaming on, and as much as we love Fassbender, we sincerely doubt that he's going to get this movie greenlit. While the combination of Aronofsky and Bale/Bruce Wayne was a no-brainer for that budget, Fassbender is barely a household name at this point and still mostly celebrated among film nerds than the general public that the studio will definitely want to buy tickets to this movie.

    Michael Fassbender Says '12 Years A Slave' Is His Next Film, Shoots Summer 2012; Developing A Project With An Ex-Beta Band Member | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE

    Fassbender said since then he’s been doing loads of press and relaxing when he can and just trying to take stock. As for his rumored participation in Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah,” a project that Christian Bale was supposed to star in, but dropped out, Fassbender was a tight-lipped vault. Asked if that was going to be his next picture – it’s rumored to shoot in March 2012 - he said, simply, "I don't know." Pressed to discuss the project or if he had met with Aronofsky, all he would allow was "I'm not at liberty to say."
    C'mon, pleeeeeeeeeeeeease!
