Darren Aronofsky's Wild Ride

Hosted by

Ever since entering the business, filmmaker Darren Aronofsky has been as much a savvy entrepreneur as an auteur director.  Now with Black Swan, produced by Fox Searchlight and Cross Creek Pictures, receiving five Oscar nominations and reaching $100 million at the box office, he's still not sure Hollywood will embrace his next passion project. But before he finds out he'll direct his first studio tent-pole movie, The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman. Aronofsky talks about that decision and shares war stories of funding indie films.
