Director Darren Aronofsky tweeted this picture from the location of Noah “I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it’s a reality. Genesis 6:14″:

I dreamed of lots of things at thirteen, but as time passed many of these dreams were put aside as impractical, silly, youthful and /or not doable.
Lucky Darren has Hollywood to make his dream, as a thirteen tear old, a reality. And, for what it is worth, Noah is at least not a remake, and I will predict this will not be remade, rebooted or have a prequel or sequel.
Darren, this is your shot…prove me and the other doubters wrong.
yeah Darren, you owe it to this yahoo FTCS, don’t disappoint his fragile world.
Okay this may be the single most incoherent post in the history of Deadline.
Really, what are they going on about?
what the hell are you talking about?
This is a movie. Not a cure for restless leg syndrome. Pump the brakes.
Awesome. I love science fiction movies.
Right… what’s a “cubit”?
Right! Who is this really?
Obviously, in an effort to be nice I completely lost the point.
I don’t get this film, and as much as I respect Darren’s directing talent with his all star cast…I believe this will be a major flop.
Is that clear enough?
I understood and enjoyed your first comment, but the reboot was good too.
I too was able to read between the lines. You pretty much expressed my sentiment.
They could have saved a lot of money by using the ark from Evan Almighty. Universal would be happy to get some money back from that film and the ark they built is still around somewhere down south I think it’s a tourist attraction now.
1. “Lucky” is not why Aronofsky is making movies and you are not. He’s one of the best directors working today. That might have a tiny bit to do with it.
2. Look over your shoulder. You are the only doubter.
3. Aronofsky proved himself some time ago.
4. Are you on meds? Take them and stop posting.
I am a doubter. Yeah, Noah’s ark, I can’t WAIT to catch that one. I love the orig post. It’s called humor, get some.
Awesome! Is Aronofsky finally going to explain how Noah squeezed millions of pairs of species onto the boat and none of them ate each other yet none of them starved? Or how the Earth was covered in water, presumably salt water from the sea, yet when the water receded it still left lakes and ponds filled with fresh water. Come to think of it, how did fresh water species survive? Did Noah build a giant aquarium on the ark, too?
Hello!!! SPOILER WARNING!!!
Hey there you just gave away half the plot! Save a little for the rest of us.
Love Aronofsky on a budget. Scares the hell out of me when he gets studio money to burn.
Anyone want to defend The Fountain?
Sure, Josh– I won’t defend the story, because that’s pretty subjective, but I will defend the budget.
You consider $35M to be big studio money? The Fountain WAS Aronofsky on a budget. Noah’s budget will be upwards of $100M.
35 million is on a budget??? To date all of DA’s studio films have been anywhere from 7-13 million. The Fountain was his biggest budget until Noah and one of his greatest misfires in my opinion. I just think some directors work better with financial constraints.
Not bashing unseen work but far from sold.
@Shazoink 1.) Far fewer species of animals on earth at that time. “Kinds” of Gen 1 doesn’t necessarily equate to “species.” Micro-evolution (over time broadened number of species exponentially. 2.) Certain “clean” animals used for food were gathered in 7 pairs, not one pair. Pro-creation over 150 days they were in the arc kept clean species populated. 3.) Before flood, all surface water was most likely freshwater. Gen 7:11 states “springs of the great deep burst forth” suggesting underground tectonic activity. Underwater springs would have likely been super-heated by magma, and minerals in super-heated water will dissolve into salt. Therefore, salt water was a result of the flood. Sea species would have adapted over time (again, micro-evolution) to live in salt water. 4.) No, Noah did not take sea creatures on the arc. The answers to your questions are in Scripture, if you’ll take the time to read it before you scoff at it.
Hello. Not scoffing at anything, but your approach to explaining things interests me and I’d like to ask you about something you wrote, please;
“3.) Before flood, all surface water was most likely freshwater”
es this mean surface water (as in bodies of water on a continent) or surface water (as in water in the ocean/seas)was fresh water?
Netflix: Evan Almighty
It doesn’t end well.
well this is no Black Swan
Cimino, Lonergan, Aronofsky.
Let’s hope not…
Did you know that every major culture has a “flood” story in their history? It sounds like most of you don’t read your Bibles. This true story is EPIC. Read Genesis 6 through 10. It would require big names and big budget to even pull this thing off. Must have dull minds caught up in iPods and facebook to be making comments like that. I’d prefer if everyone making their comments would preface their opinions with something like, ” I know I’m talking out of my head, completely ignorant, and have no clue what I’m talking about but……”
All of the current species would not be on the ark. Only the “Kinds” of animals that breathe through nostrils that contained the genetic information to make all of the species were on the ark. See this video for a quick, explanation. It was a miracle, but the required animals all fit on the ark with plenty of room for food and water. Fish were in the ocean and floodwaters.
@ Shazoink – Because it’s a miracle. duh! read the bible it might help you with these question
a cubit is/was a unit of measure roughly equal to the distance from the tip of a man’s fingertip to his elbow.
I’m predicting a flood sequels to this one. Hopefully we won’t get get them two by two.
Apparently the script is fairly dry.
Look into gentics, example: Wolfs came on the ship, not everybreed of dog, yet all dogs come from wolfs. This can be done will every species, see atleast evolutionists can agree with that.
Also you take issue with how they got feed, yet not the issue of the flood, so of you can agree to the premise, God floods the earth, surely you can agree he can provide some grub on a timely basis.
One last thing the water came from the deep and below, this wasnt salt water, this what flooded the earth. God bless.
You are very ignorant about the bible and the flood? Do you know why there was even a flood? Oh let Darwinism worry about the animals.
Could be good. I like mythical stories. Much easier to suspend reallity. Russell Crowe is always great to watch.
Of course, the photo of Russell Crowe as Noah has me perplexed. He does not look 600 years old. According to the bible, Noah was 600 when he got to work on his DIY project.
Actually, according to several sub-scriptures before the flood there was a constant cloud cover over the earth. This blocked out the harmful rays of the sun, so their skin wouldn’t have “aged” like ours does now. So he really wouldn’t have looked 900. And the residual “effects” or “energy” from their time in Eden would have kept him, strong and somewhat “young” or youthful.
Sorry, I meant 600. I seemed to have gotten Noah’s age confused with Seth’s. LOL
Studio exec: I’m not up on my bible stories…
Aronofsky: Think TITANIC meets…WE BOUGHT A ZOO
Studio exec: Okay…
Aronofsky: …meets…PASSION OF THE CHRIST
Studio exec: huh… Brilliant! I know you work well with animals – that whole swan thing was genius.
