I’ve got to pull myself together. It’s been how many weeks – months? – since director Darren Aronofsky turned down The Wolverine? I haven’t shaved, I’ve been drinking… a lot. Then smashing the bottles against the floor and screaming “why?” Needless to say, I haven’ taken the news well.

However, Aronofsky has moved on, and is looking at proposals from Warner Bros and Disney. The Mouse House wants the Black Swan helmer for Maleficent, now that Tim Burton has dropped out. It’s Sleeping Beauty from the villain’s perspective, with Angelina Jolie set to star,┬áso if you love Wicked, you are morally obliged to buy a ticket.

That glass slipper doesn’t sound like a perfect fit for Aronofsky, and neither does Warner’s Moses project, about the biblical hero leading the Jews through the desert. It’s one of two being developed in Hollywood, because there always has to be a competing movie, with Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes) set to produce. I think if he directed either of these, I’d bring a few X-Men action figures and start sobbing half way through.

But really though, I’m fine. (Badass News)

Hollywood is going old-school. Actually it’s more like Old Testament. Both Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox are developing films based on the book of Exodus, which contains the story of Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt. Seems like a smart move considering Bible movies are like cat nip for flyover states.

At Fox, Bill Collage and Adam Cooper are penning the screenplay for ‘Untitled Moses Project,” while at Warner Bros., Stuart Hazeldine and Michael Green are writing Moses. Clearly, Warner Bros. is off to a better start in the name department. But considering that Collage and Cooper were the brains behind the Olsen-twins movie, New York Minute, let’s not count Fox out just yet. (Vulture)
