Anthony Hopkins Finds Noah
He'll be Methuselah

Anthony Hopkins Finds Noah

Though he already has the likes of Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Ray Winstone aboard Biblical epic Noah, Darren Aronofsky has found room aboard the story for more top talent. The director has announced on Twitter that Anthony Hopkins has signed to play Methuselah.

Hitting the social media network, Aronofsky tweeted, “I'm honoured to be working with the great sir Anthony Hopkins. We just added him to the stellar cast of Noah.”

Methuselah is listed as the oldest person in the Bible, clocking in at the ripe old age of 969, and one of the people around shortly before the great flood that will most likely form the ticking clock threat of Aronofsky’s tale. We’ll be interested as to whether the director goes the Prometheus route with the character and slathers Hopkins in old man make-up, or whether he’s stick with the actors’ own gracefully aged mug and show a Methuselah who's better preserved than Yoda.

The cast also includes Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth as Noah’s sons, with Emma Watson as Ila and Nolan Gross playing Lerman’s character Ham at a younger age.

Aronofsky expects to start shooting at the end of August and the film is set to flood our screens on March 28, 2014.
