The Hollywood Reporter told us that Angelina Jolie and director Darren Aronofsky are in talks to develop a big-screen adaptation of "Serena: A Novel" by Ron Rash. Jolie will star, while Aronofsky will helm. Chris Kyle wrote the screenplay.

Set in the rugged mountains of 1929 North Carolina, "Serena" follows a man named George Pemberton and his new bride, Serena, as they create a timber empire. Serena not only takes to the woods, but she also pushes her husband to commit more and more ruthless acts. When she learns she cannot bear a child, Serena sets out to murder the son her husband fathered illegitimately.


Brutal!
