First Peek: Inside the Ark on the Set of Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah'
"Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?" There's an interesting first look, or rather just a first peek, set photo straight from the film's cinematographer that is a must see. Oscar nominated DP Matthew Libatique (as @MattyLibatique via The Film Stage) tweeted this photo from the set of Darren Aronofsky's Noah earlier today (Tuesday). He only says: "Pre lighting on the holiest day of the year." We've seen a first look at Russell Crowe as Noah, but with this inside look at all the snakes and alligators, it's a hint at the more gritty, real version of this story we may be getting. I'm intrigued, can't wait to see more from it! View his photo below.
In Darren Aronofsky's take on the Biblical tale, Noah (Crowe) is a man who loves Earth and all of its animal inhabitants, but has become disillusioned with the way humans have treated their planet. Paramount/New Regency are behind the project, being produced by Aronofsky & Protozoa Pictures partner Scott Franklin with Mary Parent. Aronofsky & Ari Handel wrote the script, with a rewrite by John Logan. The cast includes Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins. At this moment, Paramount has Noah scheduled for release on March 28th, 2014 still a few years out. We'll continue to keep you updated.
