Screen adaptation and comic book of Noah's Ark in talks

Darren Aronofsky, director of the wildly successfully Black Swan, has announced his intention to create a modern, edgy adaptation of the classic story of Noah's Ark, simply entitled Noah.

Aronofsky has already created a script for the movie, one that he has been working on since he was 13-years old. Attempting to sell his script for several years, Aronofsky now has enough credibility (thanks to the success of Black Swan) to turn his script into movie magic.

New Regency Production Company is already considering a role as co-financier for Noah, a film that is estimated to have a $130 million price tag.

Oscar nominated screenwriter John Logan is currently revising the script. Logan has been the screenwriter of previous blockbuster hits such as Gladiator, The Aviator and most recently, Rango, starring Johnny Depp.

Aronofsky is also currently working with Canadian illustrator Nico Henrichon to develop a comic book version of Noah that is scheduled to be released sometime next year.
