While details about the plot are still vague, it's expected that the movie will follow Noah's path as he is instructed by God to build an ark for two of every animal and Noah's family in preparation for a great flood that will erase life on Earth. Aronofsky wrote the script along with John Logan (Hugo, Gladiator) and they have lined up an impressive cast that includes Russell Crowe as Noah, Jennifer Connelly as Noah's wife, Douglas Booth and Logan Lerman as Noah's sons, and Ray Winstone as the film's central villain. Production is scheduled to begin this month and it will be released on March 28, 2014.
