If you’ve been wondering how Darren Aronofky‘s film Noah will hand the whole “ark full of animals” part of the story of Noah, the photo above (seen in full below) will put the question to rest. Director of Photography Matthew Libatique posted the photo of the interior of the ark today, and we can see what looks like hints of enough reptiles to fill a couple zoos. Read More »

Coming off the Oscar-winning Black Swan, director Darren Aronofsky could have done anything, so after dropping The Wolverine, he decided to build an ark. He’s currently shooting Noah, the Biblical tale of a man who builds an ark to save life on Earth after receiving a message from God. Russell Crowe plays the title role but he’s joined by Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson and Anthony Hopkins. It’s scheduled for release March 28, 2014 and after the jump you can see some new set photos. Read More »
Director Darren Aronofsky joined Twitter in January, and since the start of production on his current film Noah, which stars Russell Crowe as the biblical character who builds a massive ark, he’s been sending out guarded glimpses of the Iceland shoot.

Paramount’s official synopsis for Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah is pretty vague, referring to it as “a close adaptation” and giving only the barest outline of the classic Biblical tale. But if you’re really curious about what approach Aronofsky plans to take, it’s not hard to dig up some pretty potent clues. A few lucky folks have already gotten a glimpse at the actual script, and for a more visual reference we can turn to Aronofsky’s own comic books based on that script.
Not surprisingly, Aronofsky’s version is a far cry from the simple religious tale you may vaguely recall from Sunday school. For starters, his Noah is a Mad Max-style warrior dealing with “eleven-foot-tall fallen angels with six arms and no wings.” Really. More details after the jump. More details after the jump.

Jennifer Connelly was one of the earliest names being rumored for Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah, with The Tracking Board preemptively announcing her casting as Naameh, wife of Noah (Russell Crowe) all the way back in April. However, while a slew of other names including Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Emma Watson, and Ray Winstone have boarded the cast over the past several weeks, her status has remained uncertain. As of several days ago, we were even hearing that Julianne Moore was in consideration for the role originally said to Connelly’s.
But sometimes even apparently unfounded rumors turn out to have some truth to them, and this is one of those times. Various outlets are now reporting that Connelly has finally received an official offer, and is now in negotiations to join Aronofsky’s Biblical epic. More details after the jump.

For months there were rumors that Liam Neeson might end up playing the villain in Darren Aronofsky‘s unique take on the Biblical epic Noah. But one of the last news breaks we had on the film informed us that Neeson was out of the running and Aronofsky would have to look for someone else to oppose the ark-building efforts of Noah (Russell Crowe).
Now Ray Winstone, who was just treated rather shabbily as one of the dwarfs in Snow White and the Huntsman, has been offered the villain role. Read More »
