Darren Aronofsky

Fox Searchlight

Darren Aronofsky legt momenteel de laatste hand aan Noah. Het is zijn ambitieuze verfilming van het bekende bijbelverhaal met Russell Crowe in de titelrol. De film  zou in april volgend jaar in de zalen verschijnen. Naast Crowe spelen onder anderen ook Emma Watson, Logan Herman, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins mee in de vertelling over Noah en zijn Ark.

Ondertussen lijkt ook het volgende project van Aranofsky al vast te liggen. Zo zou de regisseur van Requiem for a Dream en Black Swan voor 20th Century Fox Red Sparrow verfilmen, een boek van Jason Matthews dat sinds juni in de rekken ligt. De internationale thriller speelt zich af in het hedendaagse Rusland. Agente Dominka Egorova een “Sparrow” is een professionele verleidster. Zij moet de CIA-agent Nathaniel Nash opsporen. Wie meer wil weten over de plot van het boek, kan hieronder de (Engelstalige) korte inhoud lezen.

In present-day Russia, ruled by blue-eyed, unblinking President Vladimir Putin, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova struggles to survive in the post-Soviet intelligence jungle. Ordered against her will to become a “Sparrow,” a trained seductress, Dominika is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a young CIA officer who handles the Agency’s most important Russian mole.

As the action careens between Russia, Finland, Greece, Italy, and the United States, Dominika and Nate soon collide in a duel of wills, tradecraft, and—inevitably—forbidden passion that threatens not just their lives but those of others as well. As secret allegiances are made and broken, Dominika and Nate’s game reaches a deadly crossroads. Soon one of them begins a dangerous double existence in a life-and-death operation that consumes intelligence agencies from Moscow to Washington, DC.

Page by page, veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews’s Red Sparrow delights, terrifies and fascinates, all while delivering an unforgettable cast, from a sadistic Spetsnaz “mechanic” who carries out Putin’s murderous schemes to the weary CIA Station Chief who resists Washington “cake-eaters”. Packed with insider detail, this novel brims with Matthews’s life experience of espionage, counterintelligence, spy recruitment, and cyber-warfare. Brilliantly composed, Red Sparrow is a masterful spy tale. Authentic, tense, and entertaining, this novel introduces Jason Matthews as a major new American talent.
