The last time Jennifer Connelly teamed up with director Darren Aronofsky, for Requiem For A Dream, it didn’t exactly go well for her character. Hopefully things will go a little better for her if rumours are true the Connelly is in talks to star in Aronofsky’s Noah – even if the film is dealing with the death of virtually every human on the planet.
The Tracking Board has the news, and says that Paramount is also showing interest in Saoirse Ronan for a supporting role. Jennifer Connelly will play Naameh, the wife of Russell Crowe’s title character, with the film giving an action-packed take on the biblical story of The Flood. As for Ronan’s charcter, it isn’t known which character she would play, or indeed whether an offer has been made to the actress yet.
Darren Aronofsky will direct from a screenplay he co-wrote with Ari Handel, with production scheduled to begin in June.
