The book, published in June by Scribner, is set in modern-day Russia and follows a CIA officer and a Russian ballerina turned spy who has become a “sparrow,” or trained seductress.
Aronofsky shot “Noah” last summer for Paramount Pictures and New Regency, which have dated the biblical epic for March 28, 2014. Russell Crowe is starring.
“Noah” is a retelling of the Noah’s Ark tale and the helmer’s followup to “Black Swan.” Aronofsky and Scott Franklin are producing.
Aronofsky is repped by CAA.
The negotiations for “Sparrow” were first reported by Deadline.com.
