Hey folks, Harry here... in my Hospital bed, watching the misery that is the Golden Globes... BEE GEES Christian Bale just won for THE FIGHTER - and as I was watching this, I got an email with the following:
Just seen this interview with Darren Aronofsky pop up on Google News. He mentions that his old script is being made in to a comic, before letting slip that "we're going to do a comic book version first and see what happens...".
Very interesting. The full quote -
CoF: Speaking of which, you’ve worked in the comic-book medium before, with your adaptation of The Fountain (2006), and the tie-in book to Pi. Do you ever feel like realising your vision of something like the Batman story that you were working on as a comic book?
DA: Well, we’re actually doing one. It hasn’t really been announced, I don’t know if I should give you the scoop! But we’re getting there. We’re doing a comic book of a script that’s really hard to make and we’re going to do a comic version first and see what happens…
That's cool. For one, we'd get to finally see what Aronofsky's vision for BATMAN would be, at least in comic form, but then... the fact that Darren is going to blow everyone's minds with his WOLVERINE, he'll have the mega-success (yes, I believe in Aronofsky this much) that there could very well be a possibility of him tacking BATMAN.... At least, that's pretty much what he's hinting at here. Excuse me, it's time for more pain medicine... damn this smarts... Actually, it's pretty insane to be on pain meds talking about Aronofsky... but there's no way I could type if I weren't... but I'm so gonna get in that Red Dress!
