We’ve seen a number of images from the set of director Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic Noah thus far, giving us peeks at Russell Crowe as the titular hero and Logan Lerman in his period garb, but we’ve yet to see the film’s antagonist, Ray Winstone. That changes today, as the first images of Winstone’s character have landed online. We don’t know much about the role other than it’s that of Noah’s nemesis, but Winstone’s sporting some fairly bloody wounds so it appears that he gets into a skirmish of sorts at some point in the film. Liam Neeson and Liev Schreiber were reportedly considered for the role early on, but I think Winstone will make for a suitable baddie opposite Crowe.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Douglas Booth, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Durand, Martin Csokas and Mark Margolis. Noah opens March 28, 2014. [Update: We’ve removed the unofficial images from the article.]
Here’s the synopsis for Noah:
NOAH is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood. The screenplay was written by Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter John Logan (GLADIATOR, HUGO). Scott Franklin and Aronofsky of Protozoa Pictures, along with Mary Parent of Disruption Entertainment, will produce the film. The film will be executive produced by Ari Handel (BLACK SWAN), Arnon Milchan of New Regency and Chris Brigham (INCEPTION, ARGO).
