Talking with The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Film Group president Adam Goodman discusses the studios' upcoming film projects. Among them are the fourth Transformers film, Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic Noah, and the adaptation of the post-apocalyptic novel World War Z. Goodman reveals new tidbits about Noah, confirming the rating and budget as well as the involvement of Jennifer Connelly and Saoirse Ronan. He confirms that the story Transformers 4 will be different from the other films, and Ehren Kruger (who worked on the last two movies) is writing the script. Additionally, Goodman discusses the reasons behind pushing World War Z to summer of 2013. For updates on Top Gun 2, Mission Impossible 5 and the Jack Ryan reboot, click the link below.
On Noah Rating, Cast And Budget:
It will be a big, robust production and will have tremendous scale. It's the perfect combination of casting [Russell Crowe, Saoirse Ronan and Jennifer Connelly] and a remarkable adventure. This isn't what you think of when you think of Darren, but it will be very true to him as a filmmaker. It will be PG-13 and will likely cost around $125 million.
On The New Direction For Transformers 4:
The story is going in a different direction now. Ehren Kruger [who wrote the past two Transformers movies] is writing it for us, and we're starting to engage, but I can't say anything more.
On The Delay For World War Z:
It is an action-adventure movie with a lot of extreme ideas -- i.e., a world war with zombies -- so it felt more like a summer tentpole. One Shot, starring Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher, seemed like a great Christmas opportunity, so we moved that up. We see One Shot, based on Lee Child's novels, as a potential franchise.
World War Z is set to hit theaters June 21st, 2013, while Noah and Transformers 4 are scheduled to be released March 28th and June 27th, respectively, in 2014.
