About The Production

“Audiences can expect all the great moments of the Noah story . . . the Ark, the animals, the Nephilim, the first rainbow, the dove. But hopefully they are captured in new and unexpected ways. Instead of repeating what’s been seen before, we looked carefully at what is written in Genesis, and then created a setting on screen where we felt these miracles could take place.”
— Darren Aronofsky

From the inspirational story of courage, sacrifice, hope and redemption, Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler,” “The Fountain”) brings to the screen “Noah.” Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe portrays the man chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world. Never before has the full story been brought to life on screen in a vivid epic – inviting the audience to experience these spectacular events through the eyes and emotions of Noah and his family, as they journey through fear and faith, destruction and triumph, hardship and hope.

The production took the film’s world-class cast and crew on their own unexpected journey as they set out to intensively research Noah’s world, honor the text and board an authentic Ark, hand-built to biblically-detailed specifications. In every aspect of the film’s performances, action and innovative special-effects, the creative team’s aim was clear: to forge a contemporary experience of “Noah” that is immediate, vibrant and personal. The result is the first cinematic portrait of Noah as an imperfect man whose awe-inspiring task grapples with the worst of humanity while affirming our faith in its best.

Paramount Pictures and Regency Enterprises Present a Protozoa Pictures Production of “Noah,” directed by Darren Aronofsky from a screenplay written by Aronofsky & Ari Handel (“The Fountain”). The producers are Scott Franklin (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”), Mary Parent (“Pacific Rim”), and Arnon Milchan, Ari Handel and Chris Brigham (“Inception,” “Shutter Island”) are executive producers.

The film’s behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Matthew Libatique (“Black Swan,” “Iron Man”), production designer Mark Friedberg (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”, “Synecdoche, New York”), costume designer Michael Wilkinson (“Man of Steel”, “American Hustle”) and composer Clint Mansell (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”).
