A few more names are climbing aboard Darren Aronofskyâ€™s Noah. Russell Crowe has already signed on to play as the titular character and Saorise Ronan and Jennifer Connelly are in for unknown roles, possibly as characters closely related to Noah. It is rumored that Connelly will play Noahâ€™s wife. Now Deadline is reporting that Logan Lerman (Awake) and Douglas Booth (upcoming Romeo and Juliet) are signed up to play as Noahâ€™s sons.
According to the report, Booth will play the younger son Shem, while Lerman will play as the elder sibling Ham. While we have confirmed a few more characters for Aronofskyâ€™s biblical movie, we still donâ€™t know what Ronanâ€™s part is in all of this. The site says that there is a role for a love interest for Noahâ€™s oldest son in the film, so there is a possibility that she could fulfill that role.
The report also mentions that Liam Neeson, who was up to play as the villain in Noah, is no longer going to be a part of the film.
Noah is expected to open in theaters in 2013.
