After leaving the Wolverine sequel for family reasons, Director Darren Aronofsky is circling his next project per Vulture. They’re reporting Aronofsky is considering a science-fiction script called Human Nature, which has Oscar winner George Clooney is attached to star.
Human Nature about a cryogenically frozen man who wakes up to a world in which the human race has become another species’ pet. Penned by a script from Jeff Welch that has been around for almost two decades, this would be Aronofsky’s first project since declining Wolverine 2 and his followup to Oscar nominated Black Swan.
What does this mean? The Wolverine sequel always sounded good in theory but Aronofsky seems a better fit for this sort of material as opposed to a comic book sequel to a franchise he didn’t begin. Working with Clooney would also be a good thing as Aronofsky always gets great performances from his stars and seeing how well Clooney works with him would be something as well.
