Before it was just one, now there could be three. During an interview with THR at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Paramount President Adam Goodman revealed that Darren Aronofsky‘s biblical epic Noah would be adding two actresses to the cast. Jennifer Connelly – who has been long rumored to be a part of the cast – and Saoirse Ronan are reportedly joining the cast.
Not too long ago it was reported that director Darren Aronofsky was looking at Russell Crowe to play Noah in his take on the biblical tale of Noah’s Ark, which was followed by Crowe himself expressing interest in taking the role on.
Now comes word that Crowe has entered into more official negotiations to join the cast of the movie—simply called Noah, for the time being—in the title role.
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.
A movie about the story of Noah and his ark from Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky has been floating around out there for a while now, but it’s been taking its time getting moving forward.
Nothing is official as of yet, but Aronofsky has shared who he would like to cast in his movie, which is simply titled Noah. According to sources, the director wants to bring in none other than Russell Crowe to play Noah in the biblical epic.
Aronofsky also wants to acquire the talents of The Grey star Liam Neeson for another role in the movie.
