Director Darren Aronofsky and his production company Protozoa are in development on his next feature film starring Jennifer Lawrence. The project marks the filmmaker’s return to his indie roots and displays his passions as a writer, director and producer.

Aronofsky is known for breaking actresses out of predictable type-cast roles as we saw with Natalie Portman in Black Swan, Marisa Tomei in The Wrestler, Jennifer Connelly in Requiem for a Dream and most recently Emma Watson in Noah. Both Aronofsky and Lawrence are represented by CAA.  Scott Franklin, one of Aronofsky's partners, will be producing the film which is scheduled to begin shooting in the spring of 2016.

Aronofsky is also partnered in production house Chromista which specializes in branded content.
