Darren Aronofsky may be in the middle of preproduction for his next film, the Natalie Portman starring Black Swan, but that doesn't mean he hasn't got time to line up future projects. According to Variety, he has signed on to direct a heist thriller based real events that took place in England in 2006 and is the biggest robbery in British history. Wiki (with possible spoilers obviously)
Darren Aronofsky will direct and produce an indie heist thriller based on the daring $85 million robbery at the Securitas Depot in Tonbridge, England, in February 2006.
Kerry Williamson is adapting the script from an underlying rights package that includes Jon Wertheim's Sports Illustrated magazine article "Breaking the Bank" and Howard Sounes' nonfiction book "Heist: The Inside Story of the World's Biggest Robbery."
As I've said many times on this site, for me everything Aronofsky touches turns to gold, so it will be interesting to see his take on the crime thriller (watch out Guy Ritchie).
