Russell Crowe And Liam Neeson Could Join Noah

Deadline reports that director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) and 20th Century Fox is pursuing Russell Crowe for the lead role in his bible epic Noah. The part was expected to go to an actor in his 40-50s and Crowe seems perfect for the role. Having earning an Oscar for his performance in Gladiator a movie I assume will influence Noah. Screenwriter John Logan isn't a stranger to the large budget epics either. Logan's previous scripts include Gladiator, The Last Samurai and the upcoming Bond film Skyfall.

Liam Neeson is also being looked at for another role in the film. It's not revealed what that part would be but it could end up the villain of the picture. Previously it had been teased that a villain would make his/her way onto the Ark.
