Brad Pitt and Darren Aronofsky have found a home for John Vaillant's upcoming nonfiction work The Tiger at Focus. The story follows a man who confronts a threatening tiger on the Siberian plain. Guillermo Arriaga is on board to serve as screenwriter. Pitt may end up starring.
Pitt has The Tree of Life for director Terrence Malick in the can, which is set to open later this year. Considering that Tree also stars Sean Penn, there is already a healthy dose of Oscar buzz surrounding it.
Aronofsky's ballet drama (yes, ballet drama) Black Swan will also hit theaters this year. Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Winona Ryder star.
