Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” tapped to open Venice Film Festival

By Sean O’Connell There are precious few filmmakers who get me excited about their upcoming projects just by attaching their names to a film. David Fincher is one, for sure. Name me a bad Fincher film. You can’t. That’s why his upcoming “The Social Network” leads my list of must-see year-end films.

Darren Aronofsky is another. His majestic, tragic, and romantic “The Fountain” ranks as one of the least-appreciated masterpieces of our generation. Even “The Wrestler,” which felt like an attempt to lean back toward the mainstream, packed a massive emotional punch. So while I’m not that interested in ballet as a subject matter, I’ll eagerly embrace Aronofsky’s “Black Swan” when it opens this fall. And now we have a date.

The film, a supernatural thriller starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as rival ballet dancers, has been confirmed as the opener of the 67th annual Venice Film Festival. It will launch the fest on Sept. 1, according to The Playlist. Aronofsky brought “The Wrestler” to Venice in 2008, and walked away with The Golden Lion, the festival’s top award.

We’re not sure when “Black Swan” will roll out, but news may break once the film has had its premiere in Venice. We might also see it in Toronto or New York at their respective film festivals. Stay tuned for developments as they happen.
