Russell Crowe to star in Aronofsky's Noah
Apr 23 // Jason Savior
Prior talks culminated today as it was confirmed by Paramount and New Regency that Darren Aronofsky's forthcoming Biblical epic Noah has found its titular lead. While the fable famously features a raven and a dove, the film will do one better and add a crow.
A Russell Crowe, that is.
Crowe brings to the Noah role experience as not only a tested captain at sea, but also as a subject of schizophrenic delusion. The screenplay is a collaboration between Aronofsky and Ari Handel, who is co-credited for the story in The Fountain. John Logan, most recently Oscar-nominated for Hugo, revised. The movie begins shooting in July, with a projected March 2014 release, in New York and Iceland. Expect more CGI animals than the Madagascar films and a plot of roughly the same perspicacity.
