We reported back in February that Russell Crowe is in talks to play the title character, although it isn't known if a deal has been officially sealed yet. The epic puts a fresh spin on this story from the Bible, where Noah forms a distaste for how the humans are treating God's creation of Earth.
Darren Aronofsky will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Ari Handel. Paramount Pictures will distribute and co-finance alongside New Rengency. Production is scheduled to begin this June.
