For those who found Steve Carell's Evan Almighty a bit Testament Lite comes Noah, starring Russell Crowe as the great boat builder himself. Here are some new pictures of him on set, sporting a look I like to call Hessian Biker.
Cinematographer Matthew Libatique has released the first image from the set of Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical retelling Noah this week, giving a look at one of the film’s most significant set pieces.
As Aronofsky’s follow-up to the highly acclaimed Black Swan, we’ve already seen an image of the enormous ark under construction which was released by Aronofsky himself earlier this year. The new image, however, gives a peek at some of the reptiles inside the now finished ark, giving a hint as to what Aronofsky’s version of the story looks like.
Darren Aronofsky's Noah is possibly my most anticipated movie of the next few years, a long-gestated passion project from the Black Swan auteur, this Biblical re-telling looks as epic and unapologetically unique as they come.
We have seen set pics of the all-important ark being constructed, we have even seen one official image of Russell Crowe as the titular boat-builder, but now we have even more spy pics from Aronofsky's Upper Brookville, NY set.
Darren Aronofsky's Noah was one of the great unmade passion projects of the modern-era, it has been a dream of the Black Swan directors since the early days of his career. Now, after many a prayer thrown up to Movie Jesus, the long-gestating Biblical epic is becoming a reality.
Aronofsky has been tweeting teases of the production, including a half-constructed Arc and the magnificent presence of Mark Margolis, but here is our first official look at the film; namely it's star, Russell Crowe, as Noah.
Every great director has a good luck charm, it may be a behind the scenes collaborator or a regular cast member or maybe they hire a gimp to slap. Darren Aronofsky's good luck charm appears to be the unmistakable craggy features of Mark Margolis.
It is safe to say that Darren Aronofsky's Noah won't be all animals going two by two. Things are going to get crazy. Would we have it any other way?
Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky’s forthcoming Biblical epic, Noah, would appear to have added another cast member.
Emma Watson is in talks to join Darren Aronofsky’s cast of Noah, it has been recently announced, an upcoming Biblical retelling of the classic tale of Noah and his Ark.
"Oi! Giraffe! Get on the facking boat, you muppet!"
OK, so Ray Winstone isn’t being lined up as Noah in Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic – that role has already been filled by Russel Crowe – but Deadline is reporting that the East End’s finest has been offered the role of Noah’s nemesis. As I mentioned previously, I wasn’t aware of Noah having a nemesis – except, perhaps, really, really bad rain – but a quick scout of Wikipedia reveals some information that makes me a little nervous about the film. Could the vague problems between Noah and his son, Ham, be involved?
More after the jump but, be warned - the prospect is distressing.
