Could the builder of the Biblical ark be played by the Man of Steel's father? The tale being spun today in one corner of the Internet is that Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky would like Russell Crowe to play Noah in his big budget flood-to-end-all-floods movie.
Deadline is claiming that Aronofsky wants Crowe to play the builder of the ark and that he also wants Liam Neeson to play a different part in the movie. Neeson is currently being seen on-screen punching wolves in The Grey, the new #1 movie in the country and the latest emerging-but-unlikely action hero (the Taken sequel is coming, haven't you heard?)
Aronofsky wants $100+ million for Noah. He had been trying to cement Christian Bale to play the lead but that road seems to have been washed out. Getting Crowe to fill the captain's chair will likely help settle the nervous butterflies that the suits at Paramount and New Regency have when it comes time to cut those checks for the movie's production bills.
So what character would Neeson be best for in Noah? Good question. He's too old to play one of Noah's sons, so could he be one of the doubters that laugh at Noah when he starts building his vessel, then gets washed away when the rains finally come. Or, Neeson could provide a voiceover and be the voice of God that Noah hears. That would be a lateral move for the Clash of the Titans actor after playing the top dog of the Greek gods, Zeus, in two of those movies.
