Aronofsky’s latest project emerges from the waters…Posted: October 6, 2011
It’s been officially announced this week that Paramount and New Regency have agreed to partner and provide funding for Darren Aronofsky’s new biblical epic, ‘Noah.’
Since early June, Paramount has been in a fierce bidding battle with 20th Century Fox to partner with New Regency. So it seems that it takes less time to build an ark and survive a biblical flood than it does to close a production deal like this. Also, John Logan (best known for his ‘Gladiator’ screenplay) is rewriting the script by Aronofsky and Ari Handel.
Obviously no casting has been announced yet, but Christian Bale’s name (as ever) has been floated around. Without a big A-lister, it’s unlikely the film will set sail. We’ll just have to wait to see who snags the role. Ryan Gosling’s beard-watch begins… now!
