Darren Aronofsky finds “Noah” financing at New Regency

By Sean O’Connell Darren Aronofky fans have wondered what the :Black Swan” director would move on to now that he passed on the chance to make a Wolverine movie with his “Fountain” leading man, Hugh Jackman.

Days ago, Aronofsky revealed that he’d tackle “Noah,” a dark and edgy take on the iconic Noah’s Ark story that was being shopped around town looking for financing. John Logan was rewriting Aronofsky’s script treatment, and was hoping to get $130 million to bankroll the effort.

Now Variety is reporting that New Regency is willing to step up and take a gamble on the Oscar-nominated director’s vision. They will in turn shop the project to studios “including 20th Century Fox, where New Regency is based,” the trade reports.

It sounds epic. And considering I loved “The Fountain,” I’m dying to see what Aronofsky could do with a mythical period piece like this. No doubt he’ll bring the same attention to character the drove “Swan” and “The Wrestler.” Can you see Mickey Rourke as Noah? Maybe Jackman, if the two have remained friends? Let the speculation begin.
