Darren Aronofsky is Building an Ark for the Upcoming "Noah"

Posted on Thursday, July 12th, 2012 5:12 PM by Scott Jentsch

Director Darren Aronofsky is working on his next movie, Noah, which is about the biblical story of a man who builds an Ark, which is a really, really big boat, after being told to by God before He brings a flood to destroy the Earth. Rather than make the big boat in a computer, Aronofsky is doing it the old fashioned way and actually building the Ark. His recent Twitter post showed off the progress:

Biblical references place the dimensions of the Ark at "450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high" which is a pretty good size! The Titanic was over 882 feet long, so this is a bit shorter, but considering that it was carrying the entire surviving population of the Earth, it's safe to say it was the original "ship of dreams."

While CGI is great, I would imagine that nothing brings out an actor's performance like actually being there, and the cast of Noah, which includes Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Saoirse Ronan, Anthony Hopkins, and Ray Winstone should have no trouble getting into character when they step onto this set!

We'll get to see if the work is worth it when the movie is released on March 28th, 2014. Afterwards, Richard Dreyfuss could borrow it if he decides that making a new installment of Jaws would be a good idea. There'll at least be no talk of needing a bigger boat...
