Darren Aronofsky’s NOAH Starring Russell Crowe Set for March 28, 2014

     April 13, 2012


The good news is that director Darren Aronofsky’s passion project Noah is finally coming to fruition.  The bad news is that we’re gonna have to wait a while to see it.  Per Box Office Mojo, Paramount has set a March 28, 2014 release date for Aronofsky’s epic take on the Biblical tale.  Currently no other film is slated for that particular weekend, but Disney’s Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie, the gravity bending sci-fi pic Invertigo, and DreamWorks Animation’s Peabody and Mr. Sherman are all set to open in March of 2014.

Though filming on Noah is expected to get underway this July, the far off release date gives Aronofsky plenty of time to fine-tune this long-gestating project before its release.  The added time also provides for plenty of post-productions hours that will likely be necessary to create the flood sequence.  Russell Crowe is set to star as the titular Noah, and early word had Aronofsky eyeing Liam Neeson for a role in the pic but we haven’t heard any confirmation of the Taken actor’s involvement.

    I’ll thank Darren in advance for further reinforcing the idea that Noah happened and climate change is just Yahweh will. Thanks Darren!

      Nope, totally not me, and shit, I wrote this story to get Jesus to go to sleep. You sheep think it happened? Christ.

        Daaaaaad…you’re embarrassing me.

    Well, lately Neeson either plays haggard badasses or gods. Since the role of haggard (not quite) badass is taken by Crowe, that leaves Neeson as God.

      I was going to say…If Liam Neeson is not playing Noah himself, or GOD, then forget it. Don’t want to see him playing second fiddle to Crowe.

      Maybe there’s hope yet that Neeson can be cast in Steven Spielberg’s MOSES biopic ‘Gods and Kings’…

      For this Noah film, I wonder if they’ll draw anything from the apocryphal sources such as the Book of Enoch which goes in depth into Noah’s origins, and refers to his angelic and almost unearthly countenance – white wooly hair, ‘shining’ eyes, ‘glowering’ skin, etc…

    If Neeson isn’t playing God or Noah himself, then I don’t want to know, he should be playing second fiddle to Crowe…

    • Spock Jenkins

      Correction, typo – I meant he SHOULDN’T be playing second fiddle to Crowe…
