News: First Look At Russell Crowe In Darren Aronofsky’s Noah

Darren Aronofsky is one of my favourite directors. His work is usually bleak (Requiem For A Dream is CRUSHING) and populated by flawed and self-destructive characters, but I can’t get enough of it. He was attached to the Batman reboot before Warner Bros. settled on Christopher Nolan, and was even due to direct The Wolverine for Fox before having to drop out because of the long overseas shoot. I would have very much liked to have seen that. Anyway, that freed him up to make the long gestating project of Noah.

Yep, the biblical story of the guy who built the Ark and took all the animals onboard two by two. Expect this to be a dark tale of one man’s obsession that alienates him from his family and friends. Probably. Russell Crowe has signed on to play Noah, and the pic above is the first look we’ve got of him from the shoot. The film also stars Jennifer Connelly as Noah’s wife Naameh, Emma Watson as their adopted daughter Ila, and Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah.

After the Oscar success of Black Swan, it looks like Aronofsky is being given the chance to make a bigger budget movie with a top class cast.

Noah is due for release sometime in 2014.
