The mini-series will be a sci-fi adaptation of Noah's Ark from The Book of Genesis with art from Nico Henrichon. Darren Aronofsky's hope is to turn this illustrated, biblical reboot into his next project. And his inspirations, oddly enough, sprang from watching the 1976 Sunn Pictures documentary In Search of Noah's Ark as a kid, of which he says, "I'm a huge fan."
Darren Aronofsky has been working on the Noah screenplay for the past six years, and will try to secure a studio as soon as he finishes The Wolverine.
But don't expect a clean-cut tale as told in Sunday School. Darren Aronofsky has ambitious ideas for this version of the man who saved all the animals of the world from an apocalyptic flood.
Darren Aronofsky is set to start principle photography on The Wolverine later this year.
The Wolverine was released July 26th, 2013 and stars Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee, Hal Yamanouchi, Will Yun Lee. The film is directed by James Mangold.
