First Look into the movie…
‘NOAH,’ An upcoming epic film, directed by Darren Aronofsky and written by Aronofsky, Ari Handel, and John Logan. Starring Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly, Douglas Booth, Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and Ray Winstone, the film is set to be released in theaters on March 28, 2014.
Subject to divine visions foretelling the end of the world, Noah attempts to tell his people to cease their mistreatment of the earth in order to be saved. No one listens to his warnings, and Noah and his family are cast out to fend for themselves in the wilderness. Noah approaches a race of giant six-armed angels known as the “Watchers” to rally them to his caus
Aronofsky first discussed Noah with The Guardian in April 2007, telling the paper that the figure of Noah had fascinated him since he was thirteen years old. Aronofsky was working on early drafts of the script for Noah around the time his first attempt to make The Fountain into a feature film fell through after Brad Pitt left the project.
In October 2012, Emma Watson commented on the setting of the film: “I think what Darren’s going for is a sense that it could be set in any time. It could be set sort of like a thousand years in the future or a thousand years in the past. […] You shouldn’t be able to place it too much.”
Aronofsky had previously offered the role of Noah to Michael Fassbender and Christian Bale, both of whom declined.
Filming also took place in locations in Southern Iceland and also, New York state . A set representing Noah’s Ark was built at the Planting Fields Arboretum in Upper Brookville, New York. In September 2012, while on break from a location on Long Island, Russell Crowe and a friend, both of whom had been kayaking for several hours, were rescued by the Coast Guard near Cold Spring Harbor. Production was put on hold while Hurricane Sandy went through the East Coast during late October 2012.
