Paramount Announces Aronofsky’s “Noah”

Paramount Pictures and New Regency Productions finally made it official today that Darren Aronofsky is set to direct “Noah” for the two companies.

Aronofsky says “Since I was a kid, I have been moved and inspired by the story of Noah and his family’s journey. The imaginations of countless generations have sparked to this epic story of faith. It’s my hope that I can present a window into Noah’s passion and perseverance for the silver screen.”

John Logan (“Gladiator,” “The Aviator”) is onboard to re-write the script by Aronofsky & Ari Handel. Aronofsky and Scott Franklin will produce the movie.
