Aronofsky Going Biblical

Film-maker of the bizarre and gritty, Darren Aronofsky (Requim for a Dream, Pi, The Fountain), recently has mentioned a future project he would like to do over Noah. Yes, Noah as in Noah's Ark.

Now, it's clear off the bat that this would be no Evan Almighty. In the inverview with the Guardian, Aronofsky said:
"Noah was the first person to plant vineyards and drink wine and get drunk," he says admiringly. "It's there in the Bible - it was one of the first things he did when he reached land. There was some real survivor's guilt going on there. He's a dark, complicated character."

While this project if it is ever made is certainly a long ways certainly is an intriguing thought of Aronofsky written Noah story.

I caught this on Jeffrey Overstreet's blog. He had found this out right after posting on Evan Almighty.

Aronofsky is such a big-picture thinker, it's amazing that he also excels at hooking you on the character level. His first three films are so different from each other, it makes me wonder what a film about the ark might be like. The sky's the limit, I guess.

I never saw Requiem for a Dream or The Fountain, but if this new Noah project is anything like "Pi", I'm gonna flip a lid.

Noah has always seemed like a tortured soul to me. I know how I'D feel if everyone I ever knew died, everyone I never knew...EVERYONE!! I'd be seriously freaked out forever. I'd be wishing I hadn't listened to God and drowned with everyone else.

Requiem for a Dream is one of the most disturbing films I've ever watched. Also one of the most brilliant.

Of all the nuggets of wisdom, etc. that I have been taught to take from Noah . . I have never heard anyone ge in to Noah's "survivor guilt" sounds like Aronofsky could have a real interesting interpretation of Noah as an individual.
