Paramount and New Regency jointly announced today that they will distribute Darren Aronofsky‘s long gestating biblical epic Noah — a big screen adaptation of Noah’s Ark that Darren has been developing since he was 13-years-old. The deal between Paramount and New Regency was previously reported on the site when the deal was in talks, but it has now been confirmed. 20th Century Fox was also bidding on the project, which has a reported $150 million budget. John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator) is currently working on rewrites of the script; Christian Bale has been rumored as a top choice to play the lead.
