‘Noah’ Won’t Be the Aronofsky Film You Think It Will Be
Darren Aronofsky is one of those directors who manages to get the most out of any project he's ever done, and his upcoming film 'Noah' will be no exception. Will this biblical tale stick to the source material? Or will Aronofsky put his own spin on it?
Some minor plot details were revealed today regarding the tale of Noah and his quest to save one of every species by shoving them all onto a giant Ark before the Great Flood hits the Earth. The movie stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman and Emma Watson and is set for a March 28th, 2014 release.
The Film Stage is reporting that this interpretation of Noah will showcase him as being more of a warrior than how he's portrayed in the Bible. According to the site, Noah is “a fighter and also a healer" whose homeland is "barren and hostile, in the grip of severe drought. A world marked by violence and barbarism, delivered to the savagery of the clans that draw their reason to survive from war and cruelty.”
So now we know why Crowe was cast. If a fight's gonna go down, that's the dude you want wielding your weapon of warrior justice. The story will apparently focus more on Noah's homeland than it will on the flood itself. Also on hand will be The Watchers, who are “eleven-foot-tall fallen angels with six arms and no wings.”
Aronofsky tweeted a photo from the set today, showing off the gigantic ark being built for the film.
I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it's a reality. Genesis 6:14 #noah
