Rumored for quite some time now, Jennifer Connelly has official entered formal discussions to reteam with her BEAUTIFUL MIND co-star Russell Crowe in Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming biblical epic, NOAH.
Connelly, who would play Noah’s (Crowe) wife in the film would join a cast that already includes Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Douglas Booth, Logan Lerman and the most recent addition, Ray Winstone.
Aronofsky has also considered a number of other actors for possible roles in the film including Val Kilmer, Liev Schreiber, Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson. The film is being co-financed by Paramount Pictures and New Regency with Paramount also distributing. Aronofsky penned the script as well alongside Ari Handel and John Logan, based on his very own graphic novel. NOAH hits theaters on March 28, 2014.
It was a world without hope, a world with no rain and no crops, dominated by warlords and their barbarian hordes. In this cruel world, Noah was a good man. Seasoned fighter, mage and healer but he only wanted peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah was beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually, he began to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He had decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gave Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth.
