Aronofsky’s NOAH gets a green light and a start date

Darren Aronofsky is currently shopping his "big fantasy epic" NOAH

Nothing can get a film nerd’s heart beating faster, than the possibility of a director like Darren Aronofsky taking on a tale of biblical proportions.

That’s why Aronofsky’s upcoming passion project, the Russell Crowe-starring NOAH, is easily one of the most interesting films currently coming down the pipeline.  And now it’s getting even closer to seeing the light of day.

Deadline reports that the film has received the green light from both New Regency and Paramount, and is set to shoot come July with a budget rumored to be right around $130 million.  Penned by Aronofsky and Ari Mandel with John Logan working on some re-writes, the film is easily the biggest film Aronofsky has gotten off the ground to date.

Personally, this is easily one of the most intriguing projects shooting this year.  After similar films fell apart throughout his career, Aronofsky has taken a long road to getting huge budgeted projects like this, even though he’s a perfect filmmaker to take on this type of film.  Hopefully it can live up to the potential.
