Russell Crowe Definitely Starring in Darren Aronofsky’s Epic Noah

Sometimes it’s difficult to figure out what’s been officially announced and what’s still a rumor when it comes to covering Hollywood. Many of us assumed that Russell Crowe was already a lock for the titular role in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, the upcoming  Biblical epic from Paramount Pictures and New Regency. It turns out the deal hadn’t been finalized until recently, as Deadline reports.

The website carries a press release confirming all of the details, including the previously announced March 28, 2014, opening date, and a log line: “Noah is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood.”

Written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Gladiator screenwriter John Logan, Noah begins filming in July in Iceland and New York.

    Isn’t Aronofsky the guy with a spin on Batman that never was even being considered and a number of exits from propreties that never got off the ground? Lots of luck,to Crowe that this wiil ever get made.
