Two pieces of casting tonight:

  • Gwyneth Paltrow is in negotiations to star the adaptation of the foodie memoir Blood, Bones & Butter.
  • Marton Csokas has joined the cast of Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah and will star in the DirecTV series Rogue.

Hit the jump for details on each project.

THR describes Blood, Bones & Butter as similar to Julie & Julia.  At least that’s what producers Fernando Loureiro, Rodrigo Teixeira, and Anne Carey are hoping, since Julie & Julia ended up with nearly $100 million domestic.  Here’s the book synopsis:

Before Gabrielle Hamilton opened her acclaimed New York restaurant Prune, she spent twenty hard-living years trying to find purpose and meaning in her life. Blood, Bones & Butter follows an unconventional journey through the many kitchens Hamilton has inhabited through the years: the rural kitchen of her childhood, where her adored mother stood over the six-burner with an oily wooden spoon in hand; the kitchens of France, Greece, and Turkey, where she was often fed by complete strangers and learned the essence of hospitality; Hamilton’s own kitchen at Prune, with its many unexpected challenges; and the kitchen of her Italian mother-in-law, who serves as the link between Hamilton’s idyllic past and her own future family—the result of a prickly marriage that nonetheless yields lasting dividends. By turns epic and intimate, Gabrielle Hamilton’s story is told with uncommon honesty, grit, humor, and passion. [Amazon]

Deadline reports that Aronofsky has cast Csokas in a supporting role in NoahRussell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, and Jennifer Connelly star.  Here’s a recent synopsis:

Noah (Crowe) hears the voice of God warning him that the world cannot be allowed to survive in the corrupted, ruined form Noah sees around him.  It is a violent, freaky, scary world that Aronofsky and his co-writer Ari Handel have created.  I’m particularly excited to see how Aronofsky brings to life the Watchers, eleven-foot-tall fallen angels with six arms and no wings.  They have a major presence in the script, and they’re fascinating.  Early on, when Noah needs to go see his grandfather, he has to move through the homeland of the Watchers, something that is not easy to do.

Additionally, Csokas will star opposite Thandie Newton in the DirecTV original series RogueRouge centers on “an undercover cop (Newton) who goes after a crime lord (Csokas) after her young son is killed in a drive-by shooting.”  Production begins next month in Vancouver for a summer 2013 premiere.
