Paramount To Nab Aronofsky’s “Noah”

Paramount Pictures is close to climb aboard “Noah”, Darren Aronofsky’s big budget sprawling fantasy epic based on the Biblical myth of Noah’s Ark reports Deadline.

New Regency will partner with Paramount, who looks to have beaten out 20th Century Fox, to produce and distribute the film which will be Aronofsky’s first film after the success of “Black Swan”. Fox is still said to potentially have a role in the film’s funding.

Aronofsky’s script is being rewritten by “Gladiator” scribe John Logan.
