I would have sworn I posted this a long time ago, I wanted to say about a year ago or maybe two years ago. I can even picture the pic I posted being an ark riding the waves but for the life of me I can’t find it. Maybe I meant to post it and it just got lost in the wave of other things floating around on my blog. Anyway, it took me two days to figure out that I just couldn’t find the original posting. So if anyone would like to delve into a few years worth of posting, please by all means do it so that I know I’m not insane!
Aronofsky On His “Noah’s Ark”

In an extensive interview with /Film, Darren Aronofsky has talked quite a bit about his long-gestating Noah’s Ark feature film.
Aronofsky and his “The Fountain” co-writer Ari Handel say that “we have an amazing screenplay. It’s a great script and it’s HUGE. And we’re starting to feel out talent. And then we’ll probably try and set it up.”
The non-traditional English language will be a grand biblical epic as, after all, it deals with “the end of the world and it’s the second most famous ship after the Titanic. So I’m not sure why any studio won’t want to make it. I think it’s really timely because it’s about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what’s going on on this planet. So I think it’s got these big, big themes that connect with us. Noah was the first environmentalist. He’s a really interesting character. Hopefully they’ll let me make it.”
