The actors who play the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Jonathan Liebesman‘s new film won’t, necessarily, lend the voices to those famous turtles. Case in point, Johnny Knoxville (Jackass) has been added to voice group leader Leonardo and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) will voice master Splinter. During filming, Pete Ploszek and Danny Woodburn played the respective roles in performance capture but, apparently, their deals never guaranteed they’d provide the voices.

Darren Aronofsky‘s idea for Noah originated when he was just 13-years-old, with a poem that won a United Nations poetry competition at his Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn school. Darren Aronofsky’s Noah poem was about the end of the world as seen through Noah’s eyes. Aronofsky got the idea to adapt the tale into a movie after visiting a museum exhibit while he was developing his first feature film Pi. But it wasn’t until creative differences split The Fountain star Brad Pitt weeks before shooting that Aronofsky first dabbled with the Noah story in screenplay form.
We learned all this information when I chatted with Aronofsky in 2006 — that is how long it has taken the filmmaker to secure an estimated $140 million in financing to bring the tale to the big screen.

I’ve been a fan of director Darren Aronofsky since I first saw Pi. His film Requiem for a Dream remains one of my favorite movies of all time. Aronofsky has yet to make a movie I have dislike; his last few films were all in my top ten films of those respective years. Over the last decade, Aronofsky has become attached to a bunch of big budget projects including the films that later became Batman Begins, Watchmen, The Wolverine and Robocop. I’ve been itching to see what Aronofsky could accomplish with a larger budget. Noah is that film. Read my Noah review after the jump.
