It turns out the biblical Noah’s sons were pretty good looking, or at least they will be in Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic, simply titled Noah. Deadline reports that hot young actors Douglas Booth (LOL) and Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) have signed on to star in the film.
They are set to play the kids of Russell Crowe’s title character, with Douglas Booth portraying the younger Shem, and Logan Lerman starring as his older brother, Ham. Still to be cast are Noah’s nemesis (a role Liam Neeson was rumoured for, but he now seems to be out of the running), a love interest for Ham and Noah’s third son.
Back in April Jennifer Connelly was said to be in talks to play Noah’s wife. She’s still now signed up but is still a top contender for the role, but there are other candidates in the mix.
Darren Aronofsky is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Ari Handel. It’s believed it will shoot later this summer.
