First Look: Aronofsky Builds his Ark for ‘Noah’

Aronofsky is clearly building an epic ark for an epic Bible movie, posting on Twitter a picture of a gigantic construction site. It’s the place where he’s piecing together his ark for his story about the Biblical Noah’s flood.

He Tweeted this photo with the message: “I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it’s a reality. Genesis 6:14 ‪#noah

Genesis 6:14 says: So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.

Noah stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, and Anthony Hopkins. It is due to open March of 2014 and is currently in production.

Is the cast too white?

Anthony Hopkins cast as Methuselah

Is Hollywood getting Friendly with Faith?


Update: We don’t want to toot our own horn – well, yes, maybe we do. We beat the big players, Deadline Hollywood,  The Hollywood Reporter, and just about everybody else but Aronofsky himself to bring you the first picture of the ark under construction. And we plan to keep doing it. Patheos is on top of movie news, especially when it has a religious hook.

Alec Baldwin Enters the Fray, Weirdly

While American Hero George Clooney was saving the world by getting arrested, Alec Baldwin was doing his part by, um, tweeting.

I love Alec. He’s always entertaining. I especially like the commercial now running where he tells you not to play games on your phone while flying.

I guess experience is really the best teacher.

So my question is, how can I like so much someone whom I disagree with so strongly and who I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t enjoy being around? Yet I do.

Maybe it was the time on 30 Rock where he did the upstairs/downstairs family drama reenactment of Tracy’s childhood.

Yeah. That must be it.
