Brad Pitt and Darren Aronofsky are teaming up in the wild.
The thesp and director have set up the adventure thriller “The Tiger” at Focus Features and have tapped Guillermo Arriaga to pen the script.
Project, which is based on an upcoming nonfiction book by John Vaillant, takes place on the Siberian plain, where human development is encroaching on the tigers’ habitat — and one tiger turns on the intruders. With townspeople being tracked and hunted with an almost supernatural power, a conservationist game warden must face down the tiger. It is a fight that only one of them can win.
“The Tiger,” which will be produced by Pitt’s Plan B and Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures, is being developed as a potential starring vehicle for Pitt.
