Jennifer Connelly To Re-Team With Darren Aronofsky & Russell Crowe For NOAH

The actress, who previously worked with Aronofsky on 2000's Requiem For A Dream and with Crowe on 2001's A Beautiful Mind, is in negotiations for the female lead in the upcoming Biblical epic Noah. More details after the jump.



Just yesterday, we heard that Darren Aronofsky's Noah (based on the director's graphic novel, which adapts the classic Bible story of Noah's Ark) was slated for a March 2014 release by Paramount Pictures/New Regency. Now, The Tracking Board has learned that Jennifer Connelly - who previously worked with Aronofsky on his 2000 film Requiem For A Dream - is in talks for the female lead in the Biblical epic. If negotiations go well, Connelly will play Noah's wife, Naameh. Noah will be played by Russell Crowe; Connelly has also worked with Crowe before in the 2001 drama A Beautiful Mind. In addition, the studio is interested in casting Saoirse Ronan (who stars in the upcoming sci-fi film The Host) in a supporting role.

With production beginning in July, Noah is set to hit theaters March 28th, 2014. Below is a plot summary of the graphic novel:

It was a world without hope, a world with no rain and no crops, dominated by warlords and their barbarian hordes. In this cruel world, Noah was a good man. Seasoned fighter, mage and healer but he only wanted peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah was beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually, he began to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He had decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gave Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth...
