Brad Pitt is to finally work with The Wrestler helmer Darren Aronofsky after previous attempts on The Fountain and The Fighter fell through.

The two will collaborate on The Tiger, about a Siberian toothed sort who starts hunting humans. Pitt would play a lover of all things animal (calm down), who must square off against the beast when politely asking him to stop eating people fails to get the desired result. The film is based on a soon-to-be-released novel by John Vaillant.

Sounds a bit like that shite Michael Douglas/Val Kilmer film The Ghost and the Darkness, doesn't it? Don't remember The Ghost and the Darkness? There's a good reason for that.
