Darrn Aronofsky hopes to direct Noah after The Wolverine While Darren Aronofsky prepares to shoot the highly anticipated Marvel Comics adaptation one-off The Wolverine, he is also gearing up to publish a four-part graphic novel series titled Noah.

The mini-series will be a sci-fi adaptation of Noah's Ark from The Book of Genesis with art from Nico Henrichon. Darren Aronofsky's hope is to turn this illustrated, biblical reboot into his next project. And his inspirations, oddly enough, sprang from watching the 1976 Sunn Pictures documentary In Search of Noah's Ark as a kid, of which he says, "I'm a huge fan."

Darren Aronofsky has been working on the Noah screenplay for the past six years, and will try to secure a studio as soon as he finishes The Wolverine.

But don't expect a clean-cut tale as told in Sunday School. Darren Aronofsky has ambitious ideas for this version of the man who saved all the animals of the world from an apocalyptic flood.

"(He was the) first environmentalist. (The) first person to plant vineyards, drink wine and get drunk. I was stunned going back and realizing how dirty some of those stories are. They're not PG in any way. They're all about sleeping with your brother's sister who gives you a child who you don't know. That kind of stuff got censored out of our religious upbringing."

Darren Aronofsky is set to start principle photography on The Wolverine later this year.

The Wolverine was released July 26th, 2013.

Noah was released March 28th, 2014.
