Fascinated by the compelling story about Noah since a very young age, director Darren Aronofsky will soon present his take on the larger-than-life story of courage, sacrifice and hope, titled Noah.
The film boasts of a stellar cast, comprising of Academy Award winners Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly as Noah and his wife, Naameh.
It also features Oscar Award winner Anthony Hopkins and the Harry Potter actress, Emma Watson.
The director, who has directed award winning films like Pi, Black Swan and The Wrestler, had been working on the screenplay of the epic since 2004.
The film features Noah having visions of an apocalyptic deluge, taking measures to protect his family and saving the innocent animals from the coming flood. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save god's creation from the devastating flood.
Noah and his family build a massive ark, large enough to give shelter to two of every type of animal, who, when the time is right, appear at the foot of the great ship to board. What follows is a battle for Noah's Ark, so that the storm can be survived. Noah emerges victorious, and the huge flood washes all away. The Ark with its animals and Noah's family remain.
Presented by Paramount Pictures, the film is slated for release on March 28.
