Take a look at the first shot inside Aronofsky's version of Noah's Ark

Darren Aronofsky has attempted some unique movies in his career and NOAH is the most ambitious. I have no doubt that NOAH will be a faithful retelling of the Biblical story of the great flood, but Aronofsky will make it anything but traditional.

Case in point, this first image from inside of the ark itself. Growing up, I always heard the story was that Noah brought a pair of every animal on Earth. As you can see from this image, Aronofsky is going for something a bit larger in scale.

The image was tweeted by NOAH's cinematographer Matthew Libatique. Unless there is some serious photoshopping going on, this looks like a shit ton of snakes and a big gator. I wonder just how big the ark actually will be once we see it in its full glory.

Plot: It is a world without hope, a world with no rain and no crops, dominated by warlords and their barbarian hordes. In this cruel world, Noah is a good man. A seasoned fighter, mage and healer who only wants peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah is beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually, he begins to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He has decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gives Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth…

NOAH is not slated for release until March 28, 2014, but production is moving along nicely. Aronofsky's cast includes Russell Crowe as NOAH, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Anthony Hopkins, and Ray Winstone.
