Brad Pitt Teams Up With Darren Aronofsky For 'The Tiger'
Hollywood’s heartthrob Brad Pitt will soon be seen in the adventure thriller, based on an upcoming book, ‘The Tiger’. The movie script will be developed by 21 Grams’ writer Guillermo Arriaga while Darren Aronofsky will don the director’s hat.
Guillermo Arriaga quoted, "This is the first time I have adapted a screenplay, since I have previously only written original screenplays.”
"I chose to adapt this story, first, because I have a profound love for the outdoors and the intense tension between man and nature which the book reflects; and, second, because of the great privilege of working with such accomplished filmmakers as Darren Aronofsky, Brad Pitt, and James Schamus," he added.
In the movie, Brad Pitt will be portraying the role of an animal activist who protects a Siberian town from a tiger. The non-fiction work of John Vaillant, ‘The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival’ is scheduled to hit the book stores in August.
