Darren Aronofsky reported secured an investment of $35 million to film this 
fantasy, which makes it "low budget" by today's standards:


Bad enough that the film probably sends a deathist message despite its 
premise. But I also find it perverse that portrayals of make-believe radical 
life extension can raise an order of magnitude more money than real efforts 
like cryonics organizations and SENS.
