Director Darren Aronofsky is currently working on developing his next film project Noah, based on the epic biblical tale of Noah's Ark. To help get this movie into production Aronofsky brought on Ari Handel and artist Nico Henrichon to develop a graphic novel based on the script called Noe. The film production ended up landing at Paramount Pictures, and the graphic novel looks pretty damn awesome. There's no doubt this will make for a hell of an epic film.
Below you will find a trailer for the graphic novel as well as some images. Unfortunately as of right now it's only available in French. Here’s a translated synopsis:
It was a world without hope, a world with no rain and no crops, dominated by warlords and their barbarian hordes. In this cruel world, Noah was a good man. Seasoned fighter, mage and healer but he only wanted peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah was beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually he began to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He had decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gave Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth …
The artist of the comic had this to say...
This Volume 1 of Noah, to say a few words, I would say the introduction of a story rather confusing. Those familiar with Aronofsky films are sure to notice its tendency to stage events and ambiguous inatendus who pushed to their extreme limits, changing forever the fate of the protagonists. It’s the same with our version of the myth of Noah. Those who believe that we are just going to recycle the myth of the Old Testament may be disappointed. I was told recently that the first volume was almost too normal for Aronofsky. Well done! To say more would spoil the surprise a little.
