Darren Aronofsky Planning Noah

ON

Darren Aronofsky looks to be finally moving towards production on Noah, his epically-scaled retelling of the biblical story of Noah and his ark. Deadline has the story, explaining that the Black Swan director is looking for backers for the film’s proposed $130 million budget.

With Aronofsky’s script undergoing rewrites by John Logan, it’s likely a matter of studio backing as to whether Noah becomes his next project. His name has also been associated with Human Nature, Machine Man and several other projects.

Meanwhile, the film that he recently departed, The Wolverine, is still looking for a replacement director.
