If you are a fan of movies then you know that Darren Aronofsky (Pi, The Wrestler, Black Swan and The Wolverine) is a bad ass director, but did you know he's a comic book geek at heart? He is, as regular readers will know.
When The Fountain movie was put on hold he turned it into a graphic novel with Kent Williams. Aronofsky is about to do that again with comic is called Noah, it is drawn by Nico Henrichon (artist on Pride Of Baghdad). The book is set for release next year and there will likely be plans for it to be made into a film!
Bleeding Cool reported on the project and here's Aronofsky's description:
Noah was the first person to plant vineyards and drink wine and get drunk. It’s there in the Bible – it was one of the first things he did when he reached land. There was some real survivor’s guilt going on there. He’s a dark, complicated character.
He continues by saying:
It’s a great script and it’s huge. And we’re starting to feel out talent. And then we’ll probably try and set it up… It’s the end of the world and it’s the second most famous ship after the Titanic. So I’m not sure why any studio won’t want to make it…
I think it’s really timely because it’s about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what’s going on on this planet. So I think it’s got these big, big themes that connect with us. Noah was the first environmentalist. He’s a really interesting character. Hopefully they’ll let me make it.
