Jennifer Connelly Now In Talks For Noah
Looks like she'll set sail...

Jennifer Connelly Now In Talks For Noah

In the midst of the casting announcements for Darren Aronofsky’s ambitious attempt to make a film based on the Biblical tale of Noah, one role has been a sticking point – that of his wife. But though Jennifer Connelly’s name has cropped up more than once, she hasn’t been close to locked in until now, with Variety reporting that she’s in talks.

It’s not yet a done deal for the actress, but it makes sense that she might reunite with her Beautiful Mind co-star Russell Crowe and the director who worked with her on Requiem For A Dream. Though she’s probably hoping that there won’t be scenes requiring as much psychological preparation as the one near the end of Requiem.

Nope, Noah will be more about chronicling how the ark builder is ordered by God to save two of every animal before the Almighty floods the Earth and wipes the place clear to start again. Noah himself is being portrayed as a man who loves the planet and his animals, but who's disillusioned about the way humanity has treated them.

So far, Aronofsky has Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth playing Noah’s sons, with Emma Watson as a young woman in love with Booth and Ray Winstone as some unspecified threat (an angry cockney rain cloud, perhaps?) The director is gearing up to shoot starting in August with a March 28, 2014 release scheduled.

I could see two good reasons for having her on the boat, one of them being buoyancy. More
