I knew it wouldn’t be long before we saw Darren Aronofsky back at it again, even if it is only in a producer capacity. Just as the filmmaker had decided to take a break from unleashing upon the world another punishing portrayal of psychological strife and human misery — he’s directing The Wolverine, shooting this April — he’s now ensured that his name will be attached to at least one movie fitting that mold in the coming years.

That film is Intricate, a “dark story of a drug underworld”. The picture centers around a promising young athlete who gets caught up in the drug trade in ’90s New York. Directing the project is Brad Furman, who’s moved his way up from serving as an assistant to Julia Roberts on Erin Brockovich and The Mexican to recently helming the soon-to-be-released legal thriller The Lincoln Lawyer. Furman will be developing the project alongside Aronofsky and his partner Scott Franklin, both of whom will produce the film through their NY-based shingle Protozoa Pictures.
