Alright, Darren Aronofsky, You Can Make Your Edgy Noah Movie
Since June, Darren Aronofsky has been looking to put together an "edgy re-telling of the Noah's Ark story" that would finally show how REAL it gets when various competing animal species all somehow share a single giant boat. Unfortunately, like the original, non-edgy Noah's Ark, logistical problems have plagued the idea since its inception. After all, how do you fit every non-aquatic species on Earth into a single floating struction? And, more importantly in the case of this film, who is going to pay for Andy Serkis to motion-capture perform all these CGI animal couples? Well, now we have an answer to the latter issue. The burden of a $130 million price tag had reportedly been too much for New Regency to bear alone, but it sounds like work on this ark can begin again thanks to a deal with Paramount, as Deadline says the two studios have formalized a partnership to disperse the cost of the film and likely get this thing going by next spring. So get ready, because this shit's edgy-ass giraffes are about to make your baby nursery mural look like a jerk.
