In this day and age, one shouldn’t be all that shocked when news happens to break over Twitter.
After it was revealed that the pair of Liam Neeson and Russell Crowe were looking at joining the upcoming Darren Aronofsky epic, Noah, the latter decided to take to the social networking juggernaut to confirm these rumors.
Apparently both are being courted for roles in the film, which is beyond exciting. The film has been in the works for a long time now, and is easily one of the most interesting projects around. The idea of seeing Aronofsky take on an epic project like this, which is coming from his very own bit of revisionist source material, alongside both Neeson and Crowe as villain and hero, couldn’t make this writer more excited. The director is one of the most interesting around, so hopefully this will be a well deserved change of pace for the usually intimate auteur.
Oh, and he denied any involvement with the impending Robocop reboot. So I guess that unfounded rumor can go to bed.
