By now, we all know the story behind Darren Aronofsky‘s Black Swan — it and 2008’s The Wrestler were initially conceived of as a single love story, before Aronofsky realized there was too much material for one project and split it into two movies. Or maybe not. A new video reveals that Black Swan actually began life as a spin-off of The Wrestler titled The Deli Manager, with Todd Barry reprising his role from The Wrestler. And Aronofsky himself appears to confirm the tale, so it has to be true. (Funny or Die is reliable news source, right?) See for yourself after the jump.
