3rd Time's A Charm, Or So They Say

Brad Pitt and Darren Aronofsky have tried twice already to get on screen. Once with The Foutain, which Pit deserted, and once with The Fighter, which Pitt deserted. Pussy. Well, let's see what happens where here with The Tiger. Thanks to Slashfilm for the heads up (and their pic, sorry). Based off the novel The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival by John Valiant. The story is a non-fiction account.

Variety desribes the pitch as follows:
The Tiger takes place on the Siberian plain, where human development is encroaching on the tigers’ habitat — and one tiger turns on the intruders. With townspeople being tracked and hunted with an almost supernatural power, a conservationist game warden must face down the tiger. It is a fight that only one of them can win.
Sounds intriguing, not unlike like The Ghost And the Darkness but we'll see what happens here. This is something completely different, for one it's not Africa. Siberian Plain, snow, jungle, villagers, the 90's, Brad Pitt, Daren Aronofsky, and not to mention Guillermo Arriaga (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel) penning the script.  I'm sold.

Let's see if this ever comes to fruition. Or, if Brad doesn't get weak in the knees and just trust the Goddamn filmmaker with a terrific track record. Ehy buddy? I'll be keeping you tree-readin' suckas posted.

Munki Out.
