A month or so ago Liam Neeson was in talks to play the bad guy in Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic Noah. That didn’t work out, and now the role looks like it’s going to Ray Winstone, who’s in talks to join the film, according to Deadline.
Russell Crowe will take the title role, with Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth and Emma Watson also set to star. Although in the bible, the main baddie for Noah is the weather, Aronfsky’s film will add in a human nemesis, played by Winston, who presumably thinks building arks is the dumbest thing in the world.
Jennifer Connelly is still being eyed as Noah’s wife, but nothing’s been signed as yet. Aronofsky’s going to have to make a decision soon, as the movie is set to shoot later this summer.
