Darren Aronofsky is easily one of my favorite directors, so Noah is easily one of my most anticipated films of 2014. We know that Russell Crowe will be playing the title character, and some other, less-interesting casting has been revealed as well, but up until now the film just didn’t have the sex appeal that it’s needed, because nothing is sexier than the story of Noah’s ark.
Fortunately, it looks like that might finally be coming up. Liev Schreiber and Julianne Moore are in talks to play Noah’s antagonist and wife respectively. Moore may have a conflict due to the upcoming Carrie remake. Hopefully both of those will happen, because they are great, and Liev Schreiber hasn’t been in enough worthwhile films lately. Emma Watson is also looking to get in on the action, as she is currently in talks to play the girlfriend (or something) of one of Noah’s sons.
I am very curious to see how this turns out.[Deadline and Variety, via Collider]
