Aronofsky’s “Noah” Sets Sail In July?

Cinematographer Matthew Libatique recently spoke with Hollywood Elsewhere columnist Jeffrey Wells about Darren Aronofsky’s ambitious epic “Noah” at Fox and New Regency.

Talking about that discussion on the latest Oscar Poker via (The Playlist, Wells says “he was telling me about ‘Noah’ and what the script is like. They’re going to start shooting in July in New York and Iceland and he says it’s really a good script.”

He goes on to say “They’re really doing the story of Noah, a very unlikely subject you might think for a cutting edge fellow like Darren Aronofsky, but that’s what they’re doing. It’s going to be more likely a Fall 2013 release.”

The problem they’re apparently having right now is casting both the 40-something titular role and the main villain.
