Darren Aronofsky, the director of the Oscar-award winning film “Black Swan,” is reportedly in negotiations with Paramount Pictures to acquire “The General,” a film about George Washington.

Variety reports that the script, written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, will have an “Unforgiven-like feel to it rather than a straight historical drama.” Cooper and Collage share screenplay credits for comedies “Tower Heist” and “Accepted.”

Arnofsky is currently working on the Biblical film “Noah,” starring Russel Crowe as the lead. While he is eager to direct “The General,” Arnofsky is also vying  for The Weinstein Co.’s “Get Happy,” the biopic about Judy Garland starring Anne Hathaway.
