Evil Knievel

There are reports going around the web that filmmaker Darren Aronofsky is eyeing his next project, an Evil Knievel film that has been in development for quite some time. The original report comes from The Tracking Board, where they're saying that Aronofsky is apparently set and attached to a project titled simply Evil Knievel, a biopic about the famous stuntman/daredevil that already has Channing Tatum attached to star. However, Deadline is claiming nothing is signed and set yet, he's mostly just circling the project with consideration. "They are in early negotiations," it says. I'm excited to hear Darren might have his next film.

The Evil Knievel project has been in development under producer Dana Brunetti for a few years, a Film 44 and Trigger Street production, with actor Channing Tatum attached to it as well. The original script is from Reid Carolin (Magic Mike, Magic Mike XXL), with a new draft now in play by Scott Silver (8 Mile, The Fighter, The Finest Hours). The Tracking Board says Peter Berg was interested in this one earlier this year, but has since moved on to other projects, leaving it open for Aronofsky to take over. This could be a very interesting project for him to take on following Noah, and I'd love to see him work with Channing Tatum (continuing to show his potential). Only time will tell how it all shapes up, so stay tuned for more updates.

    Evel Knievel, the man with a diamond encrusted, hollow walking stick filled with Wild Turkey...Bad MoFo. And we would get to see Channing Tatum with an awesome 70's hairstyle. Winning!!

    This is crap. Stay away Darren, your better than this. Channing Tatum can't act unless you like stiff.

    Well, that's disappointing.

    And this is the point where Darren starts going downhill.
