Darren AronofskyDirector Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem for a Dream), gave an interview on his upcoming "psychedelic sci-fi" epic film The Fountain to bad-girl supersite SuicideGirls.com.

Aronofsky wrote and directed the film, which is about the search for the fountain of youth. It takes place in the 16th century, contemporary times and in the future.

"People are saying that our kids are going to live to a 110," Aronofsky said. "What does that kind of lifetime mean? They don't give us any tools in high school or elementary school to think about dying and death. The only thing that they do is to tell you to collect autumn leaves and say how beautiful they are. But they don't ever tell you that when we look at old people, we sort of shut it off and lock them up in old age homes and don't include them in our lives. So it was interesting to start exploring that literature as I started to get a little older."

The movie stars Hugh Jackman as a time-jumping immortal and Rachel Weisz. The interview is definately worth a read, especially if you liked his first two efforts. I can't wait.
