First look at Darren Aronofsky's Noah comic, film to follow?
We're all currently extremely pumped for Darren Aronofsky's THE WOLVERINE, and we're glue to every story detailed every calorie Hugh Jackman eats, but what's the filmmakers plan past that project?
We now have a glimpse at what Aronofsky meant last month when he claimed he's "doing a comic book of a script that’s really hard to make and we’re going to do a comic version first and see what happens.”
So what's it all about? Noah. Yeah, flood, boat, two of a kind animals. That Noah.
This has been circulating as far back as 2008 when Aronofsky talked to Slashfilm about it:
“It’s the end of the world and it’s the second most famous ship after the Titanic. So I’m not sure why any studio won’t want to make it,” said Aronofsky. “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.”
What we have below is the first look at the art style from the comic (via BleedingCool), inked by Canadian Artist Nico Henrichon. Look suitably apocalyptic, and it would be interesting to see a big budget Bible featured helmed by Aronofsky. I predict a fair amount of protests would follow.
