First Look: Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah”

- Advertisement -

It’s no secret that director Darren Aronofsky (Pi, The Wrestler, Black Swan) loves comic books. He is not only filming the upcoming Wolverine film, but he also recently announced how he would love to one day direct his own big screen adaptation of Batman.

Last month Aronofsky was quoted as saying , “I am doing a comic book of a script that’s really hard to make and we’re going to do a comic version first and see what happens.” The project he refers to, is titled Noah, a big screen adaptation of Noah’s Ark. It’s a script that Darren has been developing since he was 13-years-old when he won a United Nations poetry competition at his Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn school for a poem about the end of the world as seen through the eyes of Noah. In an article, with Bleeding Cool, Aronofsky went on to say:

Noah was the first person to plant vineyards and drink wine and get drunk. It’s there in the Bible – it was one of the first things he did when he reached land. There was some real survivor’s guilt going on there. He’s a dark, complicated character.


It’s a great script and it’s huge. And we’re starting to feel out talent. And then we’ll probably try and set it up… It’s the end of the world and it’s the second most famous ship after the Titanic. So I’m not sure why any studio won’t want to make it…
I think it’s really timely because it’s about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what’s going on on this planet. So I think it’s got these big, big themes that connect with us. Noah was the first environmentalist. He’s a really interesting character. Hopefully they’ll let me make it.

Canadian artist Nico Henrichon is recreating Aronofsky’s story for the graphic novel which will be released in 2012. Henrichon graduated from a comic book and illustration 3 year program at the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts de Saint-Luc in Liège, Belgium where he learned all the basic techniques of comic book and illustration. Niko is best known his work with writer Brian K. Vaughan in creating the graphic novel Pride of Baghdad. Henrichon’s first major work was a graphic novel titled Barnum!, written by Howard Chaykin and David Tischman. He also did work on Fables, New X-Men, Sandman, and Spiderman and he still regularly provides covers for Marvel Comics and DC Comics on series like Fantastic Four and X-Men.
