Darren Aronofsky Drops Cryptic Clues About His New Film with Jennifer Lawrence

It’s been just over two and a half years since Darren Aronofsky’s Noah was released. In other words, it’s been too long since Darren Aronofsky released a film.

He’s had projects come and go, most notably that Evel Knievel drama with Channing Tatum that fizzled out. But now, finally, it seems Aronofsky’s latest project, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Domhnall Gleeson and Michelle Pfeiffer(!), is going to happen. In fact, he recently wrapped filming, though there is no title or release date set.

Aronofsky spoke at a Master Class at the Reykjavik Film Festival, and he discussed a number of things, most notably this upcoming mystery movie. First and maybe most interesting/disheartening is the fact Clint Mansell, who’s scored all of his movies to this point, won’t be scoring this one. That’s a bummer. On the plus side, Mansell is being replaced by Johan Johannsson, whose Sicario score was one of the best of 2015.

This new film will also have some special effects of some sort, as he had to switch from 16mm to digital to incorporate said effects. As for the plot, Aronofsky didn’t give any details. He did have this to say:

“When it came to ‘Noah,’ there was this clear environmental statement in the original gospel, which was interesting to push forward. My latest project probably has similar political intentions behind it, but first and foremost responsibility as a narrative filmmaker is making something that is emotional and can connect with an audience.”

Clearly the environment has taken center stage in Darren Aronofsky’s life, and he is intent on sharing his feelings on the issue in his work. It worked in Noah, at least it did to me. The film may have ruffled feathers in some circles, but changing Noah into an environmentalist felt right. It worked.

Stay tuned for updates on this latest film.
