Watch: New Featurette Explores Thoughtful Biblical Accuracy in 'Noah'
Last month we heard about the attempts by Paramount to deliver a cut of Noah to please religious groups and audiences outside of the cut that director Darren Aronofsky put together. But since their attempts proved to fare no better than the cut from the filmmaker himself, they let Aronofsky continue with what he was doing without interference. But the film is still getting some criticism for not being accurate to the Biblical source material, so in one final effort to reassure the naysayers, there's an extended featurette utilizing scenes from the film, behind the scenes footage and talking heads with screenwriter Ari Handel, the film's Biblical advisor John Snowden, and producer Phil Cooke, who made the video. Watch below!
In Darren Aronofsky's take on the Biblical tale, Noah (Russell Crowe) suffers visions of an apocalyptic deluge, and takes measures to protect his family from the coming flood. Paramount/New Regency are behind the project, being produced by Aronofsky & Protozoa Pictures partner Scott Franklin with Mary Parent. Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel wrote the script, with a revision by John Logan before production. The cast includes Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins. Paramount has Aronofsky's Noah scheduled to hit theaters everywhere starting March 28th this year. See the first trailers.
