Speaking with The Huffington Post, actor Logan Lerman talks about working with director Darren Aronofsky on the anticipated Biblical epic Noah, which is currently shooting. He praises the Black Swan director for how "clear" his vision is for the movie (which is based on Aronofsky's graphic novel adapting the classic Bible story) considering the scale of the story. "[Aronofsky is] Just the best. It's quite remarkable how decisive he is and how clear his vision is. Especially on something on this scale and size. It's foreign for him too, I guess, working with such a big budget and everything, but he's just an actors' dream. Or at least for me. I like his style. He knows what he wants.

"I haven't seen the film yet, but I feel like from everything we've worked on so far, he knows how to get a performance out of you. There's also a level of trust there. The main thing is that he's so decisive. He really knows what he wants and he's clear about it from day one. He has an answer every time for every question. A lot of directors don't know what they want -- or they don't know how to dictate their vision clearly."


Lerman will be reteaming with his Perks Of Being A Wallflower co-star Emma Watson in the film. When asked about the experience, he has nothing but good things to say. "It's great. It was so comforting. Comforting is a weird word, but it's a really intimidating set to walk on to. I'm just so excited about everybody that I'm working with and so is Emma. We're the young'uns there. Our first scene that both of us had to do was with each other. It was a nice support for us -- walking into this crazy situation with a sense of familiarity."

Additionally, Lerman is asked about losing out to the role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Sony Pictures' reboot The Amazing Spider-Man. Two years ago, the actor was said to be a young contender for the role of the Web-Slinger. Of course, Andrew Garfield went on to win the coveted part. However, Lerman doesn't feel bitter about the casting process. "The only frustrating thing is when you're misquoted or something like that. It happens a lot. So you learn how to manage those quotes that people can [take out of context]. But in terms of ["Spider-Man"], there's no bitterness at all."

You can see both Lerman and Watson in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower in theaters now.

Noah also stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth and Sir Anthony Hopkins. The film is set to hit theaters March 28th, 2014.

Love the guy. I mean, don't get me wrong, i LOVE Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker, but I do catch myself thinking how it would've been if Logan Lerman got the role. The guy's great.

Thought it was a article about Thor when I saw the picture.

Well, playing Noah's son in a more obscure graphic novel adaptation is a little different than playing a CBM superhero. ;-)

I'm surprised that there's no Percy Jackson & the Olympians-related question, in the above interview. I'm kind of looking forward to Sea of Monsters - plus, Annabeth has apparently turned blond, in it...

Was there a Noah comicbook?

Cool stuff. I can't wait for this movie!

Lerman would have been the perfect Spidey, had I not seen that Garfield's even better. If they really do end with a trilogy for the new Spidey films, Lerman would be a great pick to take over the role.

@Spidey23

Eh. Ignore what they say. Whatever you say, there is bound to be someone somewhere who thinks what you just said was the most ludicrous drivel ever stated.

I am sure some people can't ever see Lerman as Spidey. But some of us can, and that's that.

I wanted Logan Lerman for spidey, but Andrew knocked it out of the park.

I want to see another Percy Jackson movie. Am I the only one that found that movie entertaining?
SecretApprentice71 - 10/8/2012, 9:39 AM
I thought Percy Jackson was pretty good, wasn't too bad..
This movie, however, is gonna be great, can't wait!
