NOAH – Director Darren Aronofsky Tweets Photo from Set
On Wednesday director Darren Aronofsky took to Twitter and released this photo from his upcoming film NOAH.

In April Paramount Pictures and New Regency Productions jointly announced that Academy Award®-winner Russell Crowe had been cast as NOAH in Academy Award®-nominated director Darren Aronofsky’s feature film of the same name. Paramount will release the film on March 28, 2014.
After the announcement Aronofsky said, ”I’d like to thank Paramount and Regency for backing my team’s work to breathe new life into the biblical epic. I rejoice that Russell Crowe will be by my side on this adventure. It’s his immense talent that helps me to sleep at night. I look forward to being wowed by him every day.”
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).
Since the announcement, Jennifer Connelly, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson and Ray Winstone have been added to the cast.
Scott Franklin and Aronofsky of Protozoa Pictures, along with Mary Parent of Disruption Entertainment, will produce the film. The film will be executive produced by Ari Handel (BLACK SWAN), Arnon Milchan of New Regency and Chris Brigham (INCEPTION, ARGO).
The movie is shooting in Iceland and New York.
