Darren Aronofsky Says ‘mother!’ Is an Intense Ride

darren aronofsky

Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream and now mother!. What do all of these three films have in common? Darren Aronofsky!

Aronofsky recently spoke with Vulture and reveals that the latter film is one of his most secretive to date.

“Most people, after they see the film, they don’t even wanna look at me.”

What is known about mother!? It’s about a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.

The filmmaker reveals that audiences should be prepared for uncomfortable moment, as that is his trademark.

“It’s definitely different than anything else out there right now. For anyone who has an appetite for that, we’ll try to do our best to serve up a delicious meal.

It’s a cruise missile shooting into a wall, this film. I want audiences to be prepared for that and prepped that it’s a very intense ride.”

Why does the film’s title have an exclamation point?

“It’ reflects the spirit of the film… The film kind of has an exclamation point at the end of it.

Aronofsky revealed that due to the fact that Jennifer Lawrence was attached, it allowed him to have a budget where he could take risks and will definitely make people uncomfortable in their seats.

Lawrence and Bardem are joined alongside Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, Domhnall Gleeson and his brother Brian Gleeson.

Aronofsky writes, directs and produces through his own Protozoa Pictures alongside Scott Franklin and Ari handel.

mother! hits theaters on September 15.

Vera Farmiga, J.K Simmons, Mamoudou Athie, Josh Brener, Kaitlyn Dever, Tommy Dewey, Molly Ephraim, Spencer Garrett, Ari Graynor, Toby Huss, Mike Judge, Alex Karpovsky, Mark O’Brian, Sara Paxton, Kevin Pollak, and Steve Zissis have joined Hugh Jackman in the upcoming biopic THE FRONT RUNNER about former Senator Gary Hart.

Jason Reitman will direct.

Farmiga will play Lee Hart, the wife of Gary Hart. Simmons will play the campaign manager for Hart in 1988.  Athie will play A.J Parker, a political reporter for The Washington Post, who deals with how far into the candidate’s personal life he wants to go. Brener will play Doug Wilson, foreign policy advisor for Hart. Dever will play Andrea Hart, the daughter of Lee and Gary. Dewey will play campaign manager John Emerson. Ephrainm will play Irene Kelly, who was the scheduler for Hart.

Garrett will play bob Woodward, reporter for The Washington Post. Graynor will play Ann Devroy, White House correspondent and deputy political editor at The Washington Post. Huss will play Billy Broadhurst, Louisiana lobbyist who invited Hart to party on his yacht, the notorious “Monkey Business.” Judge will play Jim Savage, investigations editor of The Miami Herald, which first broke the story of the Hart/Rice scandal. Karpovsky will play Mike Stratton, advance man for Heart. O’Brien will play Bill Shore, Hart’s body man. Paxton will play Donna Rice, the actress Hart had an affair with. Pollak will play Bob Martindale, publisher of The Miami Herald. And Zissis plays Tom Fiedler, The Miami Herald reporter who followed up on the scandal.

Hart served as a U.S. Senator from Colorado from 1975 to 1987, but is most famous for his two bids for the presidency in 1984 and 1988. During the latter primary campaign, he was considered the frontrunner, far ahead of eventual candidate Mike Dukakis, but his momentum became hobbled by accusations in the media of an extramarital affair. Hart famously challenged the media to, “Follow me around. I don’t care. I’m serious. If anybody wants to put a tail on me, go ahead. They’ll be very bored.” The tabloids accepted the challenge, and photographs of Hart with a woman named Donna Rice aboard a yacht brought a swift end to his candidacy.
