Noah: What Will We See in Theaters?
After completing Black Swan, Darren Aronofsky looked set to direct The Wolverine but left the project eventually and decided to make Noah with Russell Crowe for Paramount.
The film describes the Flood from the Bible and is supposed to enter theaters in early 2014. For this purpose, it is currently undergoing test screenings. Apart from Christians in Arizona and Jews in New York (both relevant target audiences for a Bible movie), a general test audience saw the film in California. And it seems that neither group is entirely convinced of Noah.
While Paramount would most likely be happy with a Noah movie that is close to the Bible story and therefore attracts many religious people without offending influential Christian groups in the US and still satisfying the demands of a mainstream blockbuster audience with nice effects and well-known actors, Aronofsky seems to have a different vision of it all. First and foremost, he sees Noah as Earth's first environmentalist and has mapped out his film in order to fit to that premise.
There's speculation that the studio will override Aronofsky's visions even though a Paramount manager tries to downplay that and talks about having a version that will be "supervised" by Aronofsky.
Noah will start in US cinemas on March 28th, 2014.
