A24 and Darren Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures are teaming up for the first time on the upcoming film The Whale with Brendan Fraser set to star and Aronofsky on board to direct.

A24 will have worldwide rights. MacArthur winning playwright, Samuel D. Hunter (Greater Clements) will adapt the film based on his critically- acclaimed 2012 play of the same name.

In Samuel D. Hunter’s play The Whale, the audience follows a 600-hundred-pound recluse, hiding away from the world and slowly eating himself to death, who is given one last chance at redemption.

Seems like a good comeback for Aronofsky after two films I consider misses. Still a huge fan of Black Swan, The Wrestler and The Fountain. This seems to be more complimentary of his style.
