Emma Watson Eyes Darren Aronofsky’s Noah

ON

Emma Watson is in talks to join the cast of Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, Deadline reports. She’d appear opposite Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Douglas Booth and her The Perks of Being a Wallflower co-star Logan Lerman in the Paramount Pictures film.

Noah is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood. The screenplay was written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter John Logan (Gladiator, Hugo).

Watson, best known for her eight-film role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, would play Ila, a love interest to Booth’s character, Shem.

Noah is set for release on March 28, 2014.
