Earlier this month, we reported that Darren Aronofsky's next project will be the biblical tale Noah, after he dropped out of directing The Wolverine back in March. The director recently gave some more details on Noah, stating he doesn't believe it is exactly a religious story.
"I don't think it's a very religious story. I think it's a great fable that's part of so many different religions and spiritual practices. I just think it's a great story that's never been on film."
The director also believes this story, a big-budget re-telling of the Noah's Ark story, is his shot at helming a large-scale, massive production.
"I want to make a big event film, and I think it can be that."
Noah will be made on an estimated $130 million budget, although no studios have signed on yet to finance. Our report from a few weeks ago indicated that New Regency, Paramount, Fox, and Summit are all circling the project.
