Actor George Clooney has attached himself to star in a new sci-fi drama entitled Human Nature, which Darren Aronofsky may possibly direct.

The project comes from a 15-year-old spec screenplay by Jeff Welch. The story centers on a man who is cryogenically frozen and wakes up several years later to discover that humans are now the pets of a mysterious species.

Producer Akiva Goldsman is said to be working out budget figures, and, if things work out, this could be Darren Aronofsky's next movie. It isn't clear when production might begin yet.
