Darren Aronofsky is said to be considering making hotly-tipped new sci-fi movie Moonfall.
The script by writer David Weil is garnering a lot of attention in Hollywood and The Wrap reported that Aronofsky, who has a first-look deal, has read it and is interested.
However, the project is also being shopped to other studios and the Noah filmmaker is not yet officially attached as either a producer or director.
The film is described as being a "Fargo-like thriller set on the moon", but more plot details are not known.
Black Swan director Aronofsky has several other projects in the pipeline, including making an HBO series based on Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam novels.
