USA Today has unveiled the first photo of Russell Crowe as the title character in Darren Aronofsky's big-budget biblical epic "Noah," which is currently in production in Iceland. Check out the photo below.
The story follows the biblical tale of a man (Crowe) who is given the mission to build a giant vessel that can house two of every animal from the earth to save them from a giant flood that will wipe all life for a new beginning.
Aronofsky has been tweeting updates about his upcoming film, including several last month. "I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it's a reality. Genesis 6:14," he said on July 11.
"Noah" won't be your average Biblical epic though. Aronofsky plans to feature wingless angel demons and giants--based on his tweets, a creature named Og. Og was the King of Bahan, a race of giants, and part of the Rephaim in the Bible. »
