Russell Crowe has officially signed on to star in Darren Aronofsky's Noah.
Paramount will release the retelling of the biblical story of Noah’s Ark on March 28, 2014. The movie will begin production in July in Iceland and New York.
"I’d like to thank Paramount and Regency for backing my team's work to breathe new life into the biblical epic, Aronofsky said. "I rejoice that Russell Crowe will be by my side on this adventure. It's his immense talent that helps me to sleep at night. I look forward to being wowed by him every day."
