Being a huge fan of both Darren Aronofsky and Brad Pitt, I couldn't be happier to hear that the two are teaming up for an adventure thriller.

Brad Pitt for The Tiger

Focus Feature has tapped Darren Aronofsky to direct The Tiger off a script by Guillermo Arriage. Based on an upcoming nonfiction book by John Vaillant, The Tiger takes place on the Siberian plain, where human development is encroaching on the tigers' habitat -- and one tiger turns on the intruders. With townspeople being tracked and hunted with an almost supernatural power, a conservationist game warden must face down the tiger. It is a fight that only one of them can win.

So where does Pitt come in? Well, he will be producing thruogh his Plan B banner, but the project could also quickly become a starring vehicle for the actor.

The source book, titled The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival, will be published this August.

"This is the first time I have adapted a screenplay, since I have previously only written original screenplays," said Arriaga, who previously worked with Focus on the drama 21 Grams. "I chose to adapt this story, first, because I have a profound love for the outdoors and the intense tension between man and nature which the book reflects; and, second, because of the great privilege of working with such accomplished filmmakers as Darren Aronofsky, Brad Pitt, and James Schamus."
