Wahlberg on the set of "Guy Hard"

Marky Mark Wahlberg, rappin' underwear model/actor sextroardinaire, recently seemed to confirm that Darren Aronofsky will be directing his latest project, Fighter.

“The Fighter” tells the true story of underdog boxing champ “Irish” Micky Ward (Wahlberg) and his trainer/brother Dick Eklund (Damon), following their lives from the rough-and-tumble streets of Lowell, Massachusetts to an internationally-herald [sic] bout at the world championships.

Says Wahlberg: “The whole thing is to make it look real,” he said. “I want to do these guys justice. We don’t want to do any over-the-top, unrealistic fight scenes.”

You want nothing over-the-top, so you got... Darren Aronofsky? The guy whose drug movie included amputated arms, cracked out grandma's, and chicks going butt to butt at a party? Whose love story included both knights and spacemen? Personally, I blame the Massachusetts public school system.
