Darren Aronofsky has recently been linked to Preacher, X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 as well as Superman (which Zack Snyder is directing), but it looks like The Tiger might be the director's next project, reports The Playlist.

Screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga reveals that Darren Aronofsky and star/producer Brad Pitt will begin location scouting later this year.

The Tiger is based on John Vaillant's forthcoming non-fiction book about his experiences searching for a man-eating tiger in eastern Russia.

Brad Pitt's partner Angelina Jolie will co-star.
