Aronofsky Producing Drug Film 'Intricate' for Brad Furman to Helm

Brad Furman

Although Black Swan only won one Oscar (Natalie Portman for Best Actress), the film still remains one of the best of last year and one of my favorites. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky and producer Scott Franklin, of the NYC-based Protozoa Pictures, will be developing a new project about a "dark story of a drug underworld" titled Intricate. 24 Frames reports that the project is being produced independently by Aronofsky and Franklin and will be directed by Brad Furman, of the upcoming The Lincoln Lawyer. "The movie is about where this man begins and where he ends, with New York City as an important character."

Inspired by a true story, Intricate is set in the 90s and tells of a highly touted college basketball recruit who gets involved in the drug underworld after his hoops career doesn't pan out. As 24 Frames explains, at the time, the NYC narcotics trade was rife with violence and connections to the rap industry, which will make for some interesting plot elements. They don't specify who's writing the script, but they do mention "auteur" earlier so I'm considering that Furman maybe be working on the script for the project as well as directing. This sounds like it could be intriguing and if Aronofsky is into it enough to produce and/or at least help it get financing, I'm interested as well. Furman directed The Take in '07 and Lincoln Lawyer is out next week.

Other than being about drugs it sounds nothing like Requiem for a Dream.

Sounds like the perfect recipe for another modern blaxploitation flick. Yay. Ugh...

With Aronofsky producing, this film will be well done in my opinion. The cast looks great and I am interested in seeing how the direction is throughout the film. And I'd like to think Aronofsky wouldn't help create a film that's basically a duplicate of one of his previous films that is certainly a classic.
