Jennifer Connelly may join Russell Crowe, Emma Watson in new ‘Noah’ film

Early reports have it that Jennifer Connelly (Requiem for a Dream) is in talks to star as Noah’s wife Naamah, in Black Swan-director Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah”.  Connelly would star opposite Russell Crowe (Gladiator) in the title role with Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast) as the film’s antagonist

Variety reports that Connelly is in talks to join the Biblical epic, Noah. The story is “a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark, in which the titular Noah is given a divine mission of building an ark to save creation from the impending flood.”  Noah also stars Emma Watson (Harry Potter series) as a young woman who develops a relationship with one of Noah’s sons.

Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) and Douglas Booth have been cast as the Biblical figure’s sons.

Connelly would be reunited with Crowe who co-starred in the hit film “A Beautiful Mind.”

“Noah” is set to arrive in theaters March 28, 2014.
