Darren Aronofsky to Direct George Washington Biopic "The General"

Darren Aronofsky to Direct George Washington Biopic "The General" Submit Comment
Paramount Pictures is in negotiations to acquire "The General," a George Washington film that Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) is shopping around. Aronofsky is attached to produce and direct from a scrip by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (Tower Heist, Accepted).

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but sources tell Variety that the script is similar to "Unforgiven," rather than a straight historical drama. Paramount has a first-look deal with Aronofsky. If the studio doesn't close a deal in the next couple of days, other studio will get a shot to bid on the project.

It's nice to see George Washington get a film, considering that many projects have been focusing on Abraham Lincoln, including "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln."

What will movie look like? He will look like a a general being forwarded to 1863 or something. Hoping that they would do a historical drama and add action in it to make it exciting.

They should do a movie about William Henry Harrison, our 9th president. The guy died after 32 days in office. Write in some crazy conspiracy plot and we got a blockbuster.

A script from the same guy that used an elevator to move a car made of gold in Tower Heist??
