Quote:
It was a world without hope, a world with no rain and no crops, dominated by warlords and their barbarian hordes. In this cruel world, Noah was a good man. Seasoned fighter, mage and healer but he only wanted peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah was beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually he began to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He had decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gave Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth …


Russel Crowe And Liam Neeson To Star
Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Darren Aronofsky is ready to set sail on Noah, the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. I’m hearing that the Black Swan director wants Russell Crowe to play the title role in the New Regency/Paramount film. I can’t tell you that this is all going to lead to a deal but signs are pointing that way. I have also heard Aronofsky wants The Grey star Liam Neeson for another role. It all starts with Noah, though and it’s nice to see Crowe, one of those larger than life actors, entertaining the prospect of taking on such an iconic role. From Gladiator, L.A. Confidential, The Insider and on down, few actors match his intensity and talent. Gladiator scribe John Logan rewrote the script by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and Aronofsky and Scott Franklin are producing with Mary Parent. Crowe is repped by WME.

Point of interest: Crowe and Neeson aren't actually cast. That was just Aronofsky talking about who he'd like to cast.

I believe that's known among movie journalists as an "Oh Don Piano" story.

Can you actually buy that graphic novel? If that's what the movie would be like, totally count me in.

Might be an indication of why a worldwide flood happens...?

Anyway, glad to hear this is happening. Aronofsky's been trying to get this greenlit for ages. Even the comic was made to be something to show studios.

If this is a take on the biblical story like the blurb says... I have a pretty good theory as to what caused the flood.

Um... if this is based on the biblical story... then God caused it. Not to try and start a religious debate... but if that story is being directly adapted that's how it goes.

Isn't this Noey, Noah's invalid step-brother?

Not Noah?

But adapting that story without God would be like making a movie about the labors of hercules... with no supernatural events. Whether you believe them or not the stories are the way they are.

Yeah but godcan't just "cause a flood" he had to cause something which causes the flood, god works in mysterious ways, not obvious ways.

Well, in this case, it would significantly change the story.

There's nothing mysterious about what caused the flood, though. It rained. A lot. Because of God. This is a Bible story, not "The Core". I wouldn't expect some scientific reason for the flood, just "God is gonna flood the earth, so yall better build a boat!".

Indeed, but you're not doing anything wrong simply by not acknowledging the religious take.

Even though it doesn't seem to be the case here, with Noah receiving messages from "The Creator".
