We reported back in February that Russell Crowe is in talks to play the title character, although it isn't known if a deal has been officially sealed yet. The epic puts a fresh spin on this story from the Bible, where Noah forms a distaste for how the humans are treating God's creation of Earth.
Darren Aronofsky will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Ari Handel. Paramount Pictures will distribute and co-finance alongside New Rengency. Production is scheduled to begin this June.
Noah was released March 28th, 2014 and stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Nick Nolte. The film is directed by Darren Aronofsky.
