Date Updates: Aronofsky's 'Noah' Lands 2014, 'Carrie' Remake in 2013
Briefly: Two upcoming projects now have official release dates. First, it was reported (via ComingSoon) that Kimberly Peirce's remake of Stephen King's Carrie, which is set to star Chloe Moretz (news of her casting here), has already been given a March 15th, 2013 release date by MGM. That means we'll be seeing that horror film in less than a year. But the one I think everyone is much more excited about won't be arriving for another two years. THR confirms that Paramount has officially set Darren Aronofsky's next film Noah, with Russell Crowe as Noah, for March 28th, 2014. Two years out, and already one of my most anticipated.
Darren Aronofsky's Noah, first teased with this concept art years ago, is a new retelling of the classic biblical Noah's ark story. "The imaginations of countless generations have sparked to this epic story of faith. It's my hope that I can present a window into Noah's passion and perseverance for the silver screen," Aronofsky stated about Noah when the project was announced. Russell Crowe is the only actor cast so far, and all we know is that it's set to start shooting this summer with roughly $150 million budget. This is one project we'll certainly be following closely over these next two years leading up to its early 2014 release. Excited yet?
