Brad Pitt and Darren Aronofsky team for The Tiger

Brad Pitt and Darren Aronofsky are teaming up for the adventure thriller “The Tiger”.

According to Variety, the story takes place on the Siberian plain, where human development is encroaching on the tigers’ habitat — and one tiger turns on the intruders. With townspeople being tracked and hunted with an almost supernatural power, a conservationist game warden must face down the tiger. It is a fight that only one of them can win.

The work is based on an upcoming nonfiction book by John Vaillant. Guillermo Arriaga has been hired to pen the script.
