Aronofsky in talks to direct ‘Fighter’

Darren Aronofsky is in talks to direct Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon in boxing drama “The Fighter” for Paramount Pictures.

Pic would mark Aronofsky’s second studio project. Sci-fi romancer “The Fountain” fell flat at the box office when Warner Bros. Pictures released it last fall. Project is based on the rise of Boston boxer “Irish” Micky Ward, who nabbed the world lightweight title with the help of his once down-and-out half-brother Dicky, who became a trainer.
