If you will give him roughly $130 million with which to buy some film and a CGI boat, Darren Aronofsky would like to make you the edgiest Noah's Ark movie you've ever seen. The Black Swan director, who's already made a Noah comic (above) with artist Nico Henrichon, is currently shopping around a package that would have him directing what's being described as an "edgy re-telling of the Noah's Ark story ... a big fantasy epic, and an opportunity for Aronofsky to create a world"--presumably a world in which only the edgiest pairs of animals are allowed on this really awesome, edgy boat that's somehow able to contain two of every creature in existence except for the unicorn. Because everyone knows the unicorns die in the flood, and that's why we don't have unicorns anymore.
Currently, New Regency is looking for someone to help cover the cost of the project, and has already found some interest at Paramount, Fox, and Twilight producers Summit Entertainment. Discovery Channel, you'd better start working on a new "hey, scientists, could Noah's Ark have been real somehow?" special for next year.
