Darren Aronofsky's next directorial project?

Uhh



Quote:
Paramount and New Regency have finalized a deal that will see them co-finance Aronofsky’s Noah: a cinematic version of the Noah’s Ark story that (according to earlier estimates) is being budgeted as a $130 million venture.

Multiple Oscar-nominated scriber John Logan (Gladiator, The Last Samurai) has been hired on to rework the previous draft of the Noah script penned by Aronofsky and Ari Handel (The Fountain).

Hopefully it doesn't suck. I can basically divide his work in half. Half I love, half I hate.

So they're going to take Logan to butcher a script written by Aronofsky and Handel?

That sucks, The Fountain (despite everyone thinking I'm balls crazy) is still one of my favorite films to this day.

Yeah same here. I've seen three of his films: I really liked The Wrester, I was indifferent to Black Swan, and I absolutely despised The Fountain.

I've seen three as well. I was indifferent to The Wrestler, and absolutely despised Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream.

I'll look out for this as he's one of my favourite directors. The premise doesn't interest me in the slightest but then again neither did Black Swan's and I thoroughly enjoyed that.

The Wrestler - 10/10
Requiem For A Dream - 9/10
Black Swan 9/10
The Fountain 7/10
Pi - 7/10

Not all that surprising, really. Aronofsky certainly has a penchant for excess. So what the hell, why not go Biblical.

$130 mil seems a bit low for such an epic....I'm sure it will be polarizing. My only hope is he doesn't put some ridiculous slant on the Noah character.....

Too bad he's not doing the Robocop remake anymore due to creative differences with the studio heads. He wrote a script but they felt it was "too dark". It's ******* Robocop! It's suppose to be dark for crying out loud!!

Such a shame that idiot execs at a movie studio think that they know how to write and direct a movie better than a talented director like Aronofsky.

So many possible Simpsons references...

In all seriousness though, it looks essentially what I'm sure most figured an epic on Noah's Ark would look like. Hopefully Aronofsky spices it up a little bit, anyways.

Will we see "Based on a true story" at the beginning?

Aronofsky is my favorite modern director and I must say this looks very un-Aronofsky. Not saying that's a bad thing just a bit surprising. Still very excited though as I have loved everything he's down up to this point. Although I still haven't watched Pi, how is it?

As an aspiring filmmaker, I would never have the guts to believe an audience would care to sit through ~2 hours of this.

Sit through what-a by the numbers re-telling of the Genesis account of the Flood? I guess that's why this isn't movie isn't going in that direction. Apparently we'll be seeing six-armed angels, full-fledged fight scenes, etc. The bigger risk for Aronofsky is alienating the religious folks this film should appeal to. If it goes too off the rails he won't have much of an audience at all.

I agree with most of the comments above. But I have to think Aronofsky will add something original to this. Can't tell by that trailer, which may be intentional, but I have to think that. Or at least I hope.

First reaction to the trailer is that it looks alot worse than his other movies did.
