Darren Aronofsky’s graphic novel to be his take on Noah’s Ark

A while back, Darren Aronofsky took the web by storm by announcing that he was set to start work on a comic book version of a script that he said was very “hard to produce” as a feature film.

Well, speculation then began to ramp up, as it goes without saying that the director loves to stack up projects on his slate. Thus, the ambiguous quote could have meant that he was putting down his narratives for films like his long-talked about ROBOCOP reboot, or even his now-legendary take on BATMAN.

That is, until Bleeding Cool nabbed a few new images and a video from his upcoming graphic novel take on one of the director’s most talked about film projects.

The outlet has found out that the graphic novel, entitled Noah, will be his long-discussed take on the tale of Noah’s Ark. The film itself has been talked about for some time now, with Aronofsky talking the film up quite a bit, prior to it being unable to find any sort of solid financing.

Nonetheless, the film has become one of the most talked about films that seemed to get lost to history, until now. The novel will be drawn by Nico Henrichon, and Aronofsky hopes that this could ultimately turn into a feature film. 

Personally, I think the novel itself looks great and, given the final rate of success for Aronofsky’s next film, THE WOLVERINE, this could ultimately make it to the big screen. But frankly, it looks really damn good on the page as is.  What do you think?
