After walking away from “The Wolverine”, “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky is a man in search of a project, and we’ve been dying to see what he does next. If Aronofsky has his way, he’ll be directing a big-budget and “edgy re-telling of the Noah’s Ark story” from a script by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, says Deadline.
The film, which is being called a “fantasy epic”, comes with a price tag of $130 million, but considering that Aronofsky brought in $315 million worldwide from a little ol movie about ballet and some supernatural shenanigans that cost barely $12 million to make, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that he’ll get plenty of takers. Currently, New Regency, Paramount, Fox, and Summit are all considering footing the bill for “Noah”.
Aronofsky was also previously rumored for Fox’s Moses re-telling “Exodus”, but that’s not going to happen.
