Russell Crowe in negotiations to star in Darren Aronofsky's Noah
Although his star has faded a bit lately, we shouldn’t forget about some of the incredible performances Russell Crowe has given over the years. THE INSIDER, GLADIATOR and CINDERELLA MAN are great films with great efforts from Crowe. We as moviegoers are better off when he’s on his game and working with a talented director. So with that in mind, we should be excited that the Aussie actor is officially in negotiations to star in NOAH. NOAH is Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical film that he’s been trying to get off the ground, but needed a bigger commercial success like BLACK SWAN to make it happen.
You may recall we reported earlier this month that Crowe and Liam Neeson were in talks to star in the film. There’s no word yet on whether or not Neeson is still being considered, but filming is set to start in July, so casting announcements should be flying in quickly over the next couple of months.
