After months of speculation, director Darren Aronofsky’s next film, starring newly minted Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence, has been confirmed.
The project, which is said to be about, “a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence,” is set to be produced by Paramount Pictures and will reportedly arrive in theaters next year.
Last fall, Lawrence told EW that Aronofsky was at the top of her list of directors she hoped to work with.
“I had the same reaction to him that I did with David [O. Russell] when I first discovered David’s films,” she said. “I watched I Heart Huckabees 11 times. I’m not joking. I watched all of his films repeatedly and then I did the same thing with Darren. These are two directors in my life who I have spent an obsessive weekend with. I started with The Wrestler and I went nuts from there.”
Indeed, she found she was a fan of all of the director’s other work — even films that some people didn’t care for. “People who hate The Fountain are just stupid,” she says. “The Fountain is f—ing brilliant. It’s brilliant!”
