Darren Aronofsky was originally slated to direct but bailed when MGM got broke big time. Padilha won the Golden Bear, the Berlin Film Festival's highest honor, in 2008 for his Elite Squad, a story of cops and corruption in his native Rio de Janeiro. In addition to Elite Squad and its sequel, Padilha has done documentary work including the award-winning Bus 174. Expect something officially announced soon. The news comes via Deadline.
