Date Updates: Aronofsky's 'Noah' Lands 2014, 'Carrie' Remake in 2013

Russell Crowe / Noah

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?

Not at all. There are a lot of films in project much more interesting. maybe this is one of the less interesting ones.

 Why do you say that? What doesn't interest you about this Noah project? And which other projects are more interesting? (Besides of course this year's film line-up.)

Sorry, Alex, but with all my respects, the story is silly and I can´t imagine how they can change it into something interesting. The bible is full of stories much more powerful (for me, of course). By the way, although doubious with some remakes, if the new Carrie is well done in these moments when society aces the real problem of bulliying, seems much more interesting. I can´´t rlate whin anyone in Noah's strory, but I can with Carry's, that´s it.

The Fountain is still hands down my favorite Aronofsky film, I remember in late 08 he talked about maybe creating an alternate version of the film and re-releasing it...THAT I would love to see. But either way, I'm looking forward to Noah a lot.

The Fountain was terrible. May have been beautiful, but still terrible.

Well it depends. The first time I saw it, I didn't think much of it, but it stuck with me and I kept wanting to give it another try. It's very's not straight forward, I'm still not quite sure what to make of some of it, but that's not the point. The imagery and the emotion is very memorable. Like 2001: A Space Odyssey...I doubt I'll ever really decide on what I think 'it means'...but it just has a great shelf life and thrives off of multiple viewings.

I think remaking of "Carrie" not necessary but are very temptation decision ! I love Chloe moretz! She is brilliant! Her eyes are and figures are very intelligential! Way of her speaking is very smart ! She act like big women and I love her style! I think Kimberly pierce had very very good choise! She choose actress in boys don't cry very excellent too! My word is that this remake must have very good script.this film must rate higher than old Carrie movie definitely.they must deliver us modern Carrie with darker atmosphere and overtop acting, I think they don't must use CGI or at least be in minimum. I think music in this remake must be very UNIQUE. Chloe moretz we expect top notch performance from you! Beat the Nickol Kidman or Angelina Joli! If you won film won too

Chloe Moretz is way too pretty to play Carrie. Worst casting decision of all time, the movie's producers are just trying to cash in on Moretz' name.

I saw PIE in the theater about 3 times when it first came out. I knew right off the bat that he (Darren) was already one of those directors that I would watch and more importantly KNOW I would love each time around. He has yet to disappoint. Im looking forward to seeing this.
