Australian actor will star as Noah in a movie to be made this year

Australian Academy Award®-winner actor Russell Crowe, known best for his roles in ‘Gladiator’ and ‘A Beautiful Mind’, has been picked to play Noah in an upcoming film of the same name, reports Michael Ireland, Senior International Correspondent, ASSIST News Service.

Paramount Pictures and New Regency Productions have jointly announced that Crowe has been cast as Noah in Academy Award®-nominated director Darren Aronofsky’s feature film bearing the same title.

NOAH is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood, according to an article posted to www.jwire.com.au

According to www.iMDB.com, Crowe was born in New Zealand, and has made his home in Australia since he was a small child.

The son of movie set caterers, Russell got the acting bug early in life. Beginning as a child star on a local Australian TV show, Russell's first big break came with two films ... the first, Romper Stomper (1992), gained him a name throughout the film community in Australia and the neighboring countries. The second, The Sum of Us (1994), helped put him on the American map, so to speak.

Sharon Stone heard of him from Romper Stomper (1992) and wanted him for her film, The Quick and the Dead (1995). But filming on The Sum of Us (1994) had already begun. Sharon is reported to have held up shooting until she had her gunslinger-Crowe, for her film.

With The Quick and the Dead (1995) under his belt as his first American film, the second was offered to him soon after. Virtuosity (1995), starring Denzel Washington, put Russell in the body of a Virtual Serial Killer, Sid6.7 ... a role unlike any he had played so far. Virtuosity (1995), a Sci-Fi extravaganza, was a fun film and, again, opened the door to even more American offers.

L.A. Confidential (1997), Russell's third American film, brought him the US fame and attention that his fans have felt he deserved all along. Missing the Oscar nod this time around, he didn't seem deterred and signed to do his first film with The Walt Disney Company, Mystery, Alaska (1999). He has recently achieved even more success and awards for his performances in Gladiator (2000) and A Beautiful Mind (2001).

The screenplay for Noah was written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter John Logan (GLADIATOR, HUGO).

Scott Franklin and Aronofsky of Protozoa Pictures, along with Mary Parent of Disruption Entertainment, will produce the film. The film will be executive produced by Ari Handel (BLACK SWAN), Arnon Milchan of New Regency and Chris Brigham (INCEPTION, ARGO).

Said Aronofsky: “I’d like to thank Paramount and Regency for backing my team’s work to breathe new life into the biblical epic.

“I rejoice that Russell Crowe will be by my side on this adventure. It’s his immense talent that helps me to sleep at night. I look forward to being wowed by him every day.”

The movie will begin shooting this July in Iceland and New York. Paramount Pictures will release “Noah” in the US in March 2014.
