Darren Aronofsky’s Noah’s Ark drama receives financial backing


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Darren Aronofsky should not have this much trouble finding financial backing for his projects. After delivering back-to-back award-winning dramas in “The Wrestler” and “Black Swan,” Aronofsky should have earned enough street cred to get a passion project greenlit. But in today’s unstable business culture, nothing’s a sure thing, no matter who’s in the director’s chair.

But late last night, the Oscar-nominated filmmaker learned that his in-development project surrounding the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark has acquired financial support from Paramount and New Regency, which will produce “Noah,” according to EW.com.

“Gladiator” screenwriter John Logan has been hired to rewrite the script that Aronofsky put together with Ari Handel.

“Since I was a kid, I have been moved and inspired by the story of Noah and his family’s journey,” Aronofsky said in a statement. “The imaginations of countless generations have sparked to this epic story of faith. It’s my hope that I can present a window into Noah’s passion and perseverance for the silver screen.”

Now we’re left to wonder who he’ll cast. At one point, Aronofsky has considered regular collaborator Hugh Jackman, though their split over the “Wolverine” film might have driven a wedge between those partners. Christian Bale’s name also has been attached, though at this early stage in the game, that’s little more than a rumor.
