Darren Aronofsky looks to be finally moving towards production on Noah , his epically-scaled retelling of the biblical story of Noah and his ark. Deadline has the story, explaining that the Black Swan director is looking for backers for the film’s proposed $ 130 million budget.
With Aronofsky’s script undergoing rewrites by John Logan, it’s likely a matter of studio backing as to whether or not Noah becomes his next project. His name has also been associated with Human Nature , Machine Man and several other projects.
Meanwhile, the film that he recently departed, The Wolverine , is still looking for a replacement director.
