If Christian Bale signs the deal, he will play Noah, who is a dark, complicated character who struggles with survivor's guilt. Although Noah is set up at New Regency, he still needs to find other studios to help shoulder the $130 million budget. Bale's capacity as a famous actor is expected to help the film, which has no movie star attached yet, land the cash.
Talking about the movie Noah, Darren Aronofsky said, "I think it's really timely because it's about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what's going on on this planet. So I think it's got these big, big themes that connect with us. Noah was the first environmentalist. He's a really interesting character. Hopefully they'll let me make it."
