Cain and Abel to have a cameo in Aronofsky’s Noah

Iceland Review reports that Darren Aronofsky has just cast two Icelandic actors, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson and Arnar Dan, as Cain and Abel in his upcoming movie about Noah and the Ark. Those who know the biblical story will recall that Cain killed Abel and went into exile some time before the birth of their brother Seth, who went on to become one of Noah’s ancestors — so presumably Cain and Abel will appear in a flashback or prologue or something. And indeed, if you check out the graphic novel that Aronofsky co-authored while he was developing his movie, it seems one of the very first pages draws an explicit link between the Fall in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve took the forbidden fruit, and the first murder, committed by one of Adam and Eve’s sons against another.
