What was rumored over the summer is now fact: Paramount and New Regency will partner to produce Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah,' the director's passion project about Noah's Ark. "Since I was a kid, I have been moved and inspired by the story of Noah and his family's journey," Aronofsky said in a statement. "The imaginations of countless generations have sparked to this epic story of faith. It's my hope that I can present a window into Noah's passion and perseverance for the silver screen." He's not joking about that kid stuff: as Slashfilm notes, when Aronofsky was 13, he won a United Nations poetry contest with a tale about Noah. John Logan ('Gladiator') will rewrite the script for 'Noah'; no word on casting, but Christian Bale was rumored as a potential lead this summer. [Deadline]
