The Brendaissance may finally be upon on.
According to Deadline, Brendan Fraser is set to star in the latest drama from Darren Aronofsky, The Whale. Based on MacArthur-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter’s play of the same name (he’s also set to adapt), the film is basically My 600-lb Life as a Fraser vehicle. The former George of the Jungle will play Charlie, a six-hundred pound recluse eating himself to death as a Mormon missionary, an atheist nurse, and Charlie’s estranged teenage daughter try to save him from self-destruction. Sounds like a whale of a good time!
