As you know, we here at FirstShowing.net are big supporters of Darren Aronofsky, the director of The Fountain - so of course we're going to post any good news about his work! The latest is just a bit odd, as our friends over at CHUD.com reported. Apparently Universal has acquired Black Swan, a psychological thriller that looks at the manipulative relationship between a veteran dancer and a rival, as CHUD calls it, a "ballet thriller." Aronofsky is being "fast-tracked" to direct. John McLaughlin, who's worked with Aronofsky before on an adaptation of Song of Kali, is writing the script.
