It's The End Of The World As We NOAH It (And Darren Aronofsky Feels Fine)

Published at: Feb. 7, 2011, 1:39 p.m. CST by AICNStaff

 

Nordling here.
 
When THE FOUNTAIN couldn't get the budget that Darren Aronofsky wanted, he decided to tell his story in comic book form.  It's a visually striking and intriguing comic, expanding the story but not losing any of the intimacy that the film achieved.  Over the year, I think THE FOUNTAIN has reached a kind of classic status, at least among Aronofsky's fans.  I think it's his best film, myself.
 
Well, according to a scoop at Bleeding Cool, Aronofsky's going the comic book route again to tell a story that he's wanted to tell since he was 13 years old, and it looks to be an epic - the story of Noah and the Ark.  According to Aronofsky himself, 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."
 
Indeed.  With the success of THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, and Aronofsky's own success with BLACK SWAN - almost $100 million now - I would think that a studio would definitely want to give this a look.  For now though, the comic is drawn by Nico Henrichon, and the pictures we have so far indicate something fairly large in scope, at least:
 
 
 
 
The comic will address many modern issues while staying true to the core story.  Aronofsky: "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."
 

A promotional video is available to watch at Bleeding Cool.  Check it out.  I hope this does end up being a film.  Aronofsky has quickly become one of our most essential filmmakers, and anything he gets excited about is good enough for us to take notice.

Nordling, out.

    by zinc_chameleon

    so as to bypass the Judeo-Christian biases that have crept in over the centuries. There really was a Flood, about 12,000 B.C.--the flooding of the Mediterranean. If I told this story, I would dress everyone up as classic Minoans from Crete, and use more advanced theology than a merely angry male God. So..Atlantis, just to make the story more cross-cultural, even trans-cultural.

    Noah wasn't a true story

    by rahtard

    It was a myth that existed before the Jews, its the story of Gilgamesh. I really don't see why this is important. And if its modern, how could it be any better than 2012? Aronofsky has ben falling off since the Fountain. Granted he has still been making good films compared to other bloated Britts, but to his standards, he's fallen off. And this doesn't sound interesting at all.

    I'd rather see a comic book version of Paradise Lost

    by Cobb05

    I just don't see what can be done with a Noah movie. God tells Noah to build the ark, He builds the ark, the animals show up, the flood comes, the dove finds the olive branch, the ark lands on mount ararat. How do you turn that into a comic book movie?

  • Feb. 7, 2011, 2:22 p.m. CST

    There probably was a Noah folks. Hate to break it to you.

    by xevoid

    And he had a large ship, and probably did put some animals on it. And there probably was a flood, or perhaps even a tsunami due to an earthquake or some other large catastrophe that pushed this boat up high on a mountain when the waters receded. Humans were inhabiting that part of the world going back tens of thousands of years (See Gobekli Tepe on Wikipedia) and so who knows what grain of truth there is in this story. However, thats an entirely different chain of events than ALL species on the boat, and a completely worldwide flood that covered even Everest. That's ludicrous. But dont be surprised if they find an ancient boat up on a mountain somewhere...probably not too high, but high enough to indicate that a serious environmental catastrophe happened in that part of the world in some long forgotten time...

    Sounds Great

    by Jacob

    I think a talent like Arnofsky could make watching paint dry compelling. but I take a small issue with some earlier posts. I don't think Judeo- Christian theology counts as 'less complex' than minoan or greek theology. If the theology behind the Judeo Christian texts wasn't intellectually sustainable for the past 3000 years (roughly beginning in Iron Age II) then it would still not be poured over in volumes of theology works sine JP Gabler in 1770's. Where as by comparison, Greek and minoan theology exegesis has been a fringe discipline. it can be easy to read a myth like Noah and dismiss it off because we think of contradictions like dinosaurs and unicorns (unicorns by the way comes from a mistranslation in the KJV, which has since been amended in subsequent scholarly translations like NRSV, etc. But the text was never meant to address those problems that science brings. Modernity forced those concepts on a text that was never meant to address them. It was written in a pre-scientific era and addresses theological, not scientific claims. We can argue the truth behind the theology all day, but to start out a conversation on the Noah myth but smuggly pointing out the implausibility of the story transplants the text into a realm it was never meant to be in. It is the theology of the Noah story that endures, not issues of its plausibility. I don't deny modern Christianity has screwed up biblical interpretation with its strict adherence to inerrant interpretation, but to say that the theology of the Bible is less advanced than previous religious theologies is pretty ignorant and neglects 3 centuries biblical theology.

    Noah was not an environmentalist

    by Cinemastorm

    He did not make the Ark because he wanted to save the whales. It was to preserve what was left of non-violent humanity. The Flood was not about protecting the trees. Had it not happened, humanity would not exist at all, as they would have killed each other off. It was far worse during the time of Noah than anything we've seen in our day. Do NOT make this movie about the environment. Most people don't buy into the false climate change movement anyway.

    by Bass Ackwards

    Agree about The Fountain being his best film (up until I saw Black Swan, that is). I know I'm in the minority, but The Wrestler was a bit of a bore, and Requiem and Pi were great, but I doubt I'll ever want to rewatch them. But I've seen The Fountain several times now and appreciate it more each time.

    Would rather a comic about Horus and Set and the Game of Semen

    by TheJudger

    Horus was told by his mother, Isis, to protect the people of Egypt from Set, the god of the desert, who had killed his father Osiris. Horus had many battles with Set, not only to avenge his father, but to choose the rightful ruler of Egypt. In these battles, Horus came to be associated with Lower Egypt (where Horus was worshipped), and became its patron. One scene stated how Horus was on the verge of killing Set; but his mother (and Set's sister), Isis, stopped him. Isis injured Horus, but eventually healed him By the 19th dynasty, the enmity between Set and Horus, in which Horus had ripped off one of Set's testicles, was represented as a separate tale. According to Papyrus Chester-Beatty I, Set is depicted as trying to prove his dominance by seducing Horus and then having intercourse with him. However, Horus places his hand between his thighs and catches Set's semen, then subsequently throws it in the river, so that he may not be said to have been inseminated by Set. Horus then deliberately spreads his own semen on some lettuce, which was Set's favorite food. After Set had eaten the lettuce, they went to the gods to try to settle the argument over the rule of Egypt. The gods first listened to Set's claim of dominance over Horus, and call his semen forth, but it answered from the river, invalidating his claim. Then, the gods listened to Horus' claim of having dominated Set, and call his semen forth, and it answered from inside Set. But still Set refused to relent, and the other gods were getting tired from over eighty years of fighting and challenges. Horus and Set challenged each other to a boat race, where they each raced in a boat made of stone. Horus and Set agreed, and the race started. But Horus had an edge: his boat was made of wood painted to resemble stone, rather than true stone. Set's boat, being made of heavy stone, sank, but Horus's did not. Horus then won the race, and Set stepped down and officially gave Horus the throne of Egypt. No more silly or real than living in a fish or putting two of every kind of animal on a boat- at least it knows it's being gay.

    Isn't The Term 'Essential Filmmaker(s)' A Bit Silly?

    by MakNeil

    There's no such thing as an 'essential filmmaker' in any sense of the phrase. Sure, movies are great and can inspire (not that they often do, but the potential is there) and motivate us to reach beyond our selves, but essential? Let's be honest, a garbage man is more essential than the greatest filmmaker, in terms of the practical benefits of what they do. That being said, the benefits of a good film don't rest in the realm of the practical. A good film director can transport the viewer to a place where they have never been, or even imagined, before. Something that a garbage man can never be said to have done (unless he's transporting a corpse). A good director can take the stuff that dreams made, and bring it to life (of a type). That's important, though essential? Probably not. Though, if there was such a thing, Darren Aronofsky probably wouldn't be included amongst them, mainly because he hasn't directed enough films. I mean, he's done Pi, Requiem For A Dream, The Fountain, Black Swan (I don't think that I missed any).... He's still developing as a filmmaker, and while that makes me somewhat curious as to the heights that he's (probably) going to reach, to call him 'essential' at this point is somewhat hyperbolical. Now if you said visionary and important directors, I could understand; though I don't think he should be on that list either (yet) but at least it would make a bit more sense.

    Another attack on Christianity, I'm sure... Although, the comic book looks promising in the panels. Although the Bible doesn't indicate Eve ate an apple, did you know ... That's Cain killing Abel in the panels? That's probably Cain in the major portrait image ... he wondered away and began his own family line. Later, these are the people who started building cities and became violent. God's people (the people from the line of Seth) marry into the families from the line of Cain. The world becomes violent and sin-filled after this union; probably the last panel shows how violence filled the whole earth. Noah doesn't appear in this set of images at all. I wonder if any of you posting here even knew that before spewing your venom? By the way, Cain married his sister ...

Us citizens don't have any sins. We don't have that level of free will to maneuver.

  • It's not every species ... it's every "kind" ... which would be a lot closer to a genus. Not every species was preserved in the flood. He also wouldn't have had to take adults. (They were on the ark for a year.) He also took seven clean aboard? Why? Because they would have to eat meat to survive during the flood and after it, since vegetation wouldn't be available. They had 120 years to get to the ark also. Since what follows is a miraculous event, God might have been inclined

    Plausible?

    by sweeneydave

    I always figured the flood covered the world as the pre-israelites knew it. Noah's job was to preserve the animals of the region. The story I've heard was that the world of the pre-israelites at that time was the dry basin of the Black Sea (before it was flooded). That's about 730 miles, so to early humans, I can see it being their whole world. If you're chef God and your grand recipe is spoiling to the point that the whole species is going to destroy itself if you don't do something - then you DO something. It seems like the malfunction had to do with the lifespan. Shorten that up to under 100 years and folks don't go bad as easy. Could make an interesting tale.

Because you know we're headed there. These movies will be made. I'd love to see a bad ass fight between David and Goliath!

    Xevoid - there is a huge difference between

    by MrD

    possible and probable, and you just smeared them together. Yes, because people lived in that part of the world, there is a POSSIBILITY that there was a guy in a boat who saved his pet goat during a flood. But there is ZERO evidence that it happened. People have looked, but no big boat on a mountain has been found (and truthfully probably wouldn't be - the odds that that specific boat would somehow be preserved over thousands of years, and that we'd somehow be able to tell that boat was "Noah"'s is, at best, slim. In short, saying that its LIKELY we will ever find any evidence the story is true, or even saying that it likely is kinda sort a true, is wishful thinking.

    If there is some kernel of truth about the biblical flood story, it has to do with something that happened in ancient mesopotamia a long time ago. Maybe durian the early days of the sumerian civilization, maybe even a bit before. The Euphrades and the Tiber rivers, which make Mesopotamia, in ancient times they were known to have suddent flash floods. They were not like the Nile, whose floods were very periodic, constant and very predictable. Tibris and Euphrades, ocasionally, caused devastation through unexpected out of season flooding. It's for this reason that since the sumerian times the people there build canals to to control the flood flow of those rivers. It's not entirely out of reason to think that the story of the flood, whose olders telling known to us cames from the Epic Of Gilgamesh, could had some traces from a past event in which a larger then usual flooding, even bigger the the atypical ones, caused extreme mayheim and devastation and the death of most of the people, crops, cattle, villages and towns of the region. And the survivor might had started to wonder why they had been "punished" so, and stories of displeased gods emerged to try to rationalize their suffering and devastation. And as such stories, there's always a savior figure. It's not necessary that he ever existed for real for him to show up in stories and myths.

    Don't beliettle the theology of those people of ancient times, like the minoans. If you think that little was writen in their sacred texts and there's little theology about it, it means that little to texts reached to us, that that the vast majority of those were lost. The vast majority of all texts from antiquity are lost. And evne if they were effectively few, this also means another thing: that all the other people who didn't belonged to the judean-christian tradition where very good in writing sacred texts and never let any doubt to their interpretation. In contrast to the Bible, which is a disorganized salad of stuff that people to this say still can't really figure out because it was so badly organized and slopply.

    It's as if God was WB and saw that the world was the Batman fracnhise and it had turned into BATMAN & ROBIN terribleness. So, WB/God God decide to correct the situation by making a clean slate and comanded Noah, who was the Christopher Nolan of the time, to restart the world of Men anew, perserving some of the few good stuff that still worked in his new movie. So Nolan/Noah made an ark, which was their version of BATMAN BEGINS, which retained what few good still remained in the world, and created a new world anew. And so it come to pass.

There might have been a man named Noah, and maybe he had a big boat, but he didn't build it in the middle of nowhere. Maybe he lived on the ocean, and he had a huge boat because his whole family lived on it.

    by Jacob

    Asimov, To reduce the bible to a patchwork of confused theology is pretty ridiculous. The ancient biblical text was written by like minded individuals, all Jewish save for a possible gentile author to the Gospel of Luke. So even final redactors had access to the contradictions and even left them in. They saw no problem with the seemingly confused texts because in reality there is deep theological unity from Genesis to Revelation, the simplest being creation and new creation. Again, if any other ancient near eastern theology was viable, it would have endured. For whatever reason, the judeo christian theology sparked rabid devotion to see the it endure.

    Check your bible studies, dude. There are a number of theories surrounding the curse on the sons of Ham. Traditionally, the "drunk Noah was raped by Ham" was favored by rabbis. Even ancient Jewish writers in the Talmud (the compilation of Jewish "Oral Law") thought that Ham had raped Noah. The only other alternative suggested was that Ham had castrated Noah, which isn't exactly better--but is not nearly as funny.

    Will be interesting to see how he crams representatives from 6 million species into a small wooden boat withouht having them all eat each other. Also, enough rain to cover Mount Everest (at least 8 km deep) would take a lot longer than 40 days.

  • The entire history of the Flood and Noah's Ark is about God's Judgement on mankind for screwing things up in more ways than not caring about some friggin trees and littering. How does Aronofsky even resolve this? God punishes man for being bad to the environment and generally to each other by destroying the very environment on which they inhabit? I guess Hollywood hasn't bothered making this because of morons like Aronofsky who'll divorce the story as much as possible from Christian themes in favor of entirely bullshit ones. Why not just air that Discovery Channel 'documentary' haha, about where they start off wondering what Noah's Ark is about, you know, anything other than what you get in the Bible, and so they decide to ditch it for the version in the Epic of Gilgamesh, and then ditch that to make it about some farmer in a boat in a local flood. They might as well just air that in a theatre. It'd save the studio some money and will be no less ridiculous. If anyone is expecting Passion of the Christ numbers for this, they ought to note that the Passion and Mel Gibson took the Christian religion seriously. This sounds like some secular please everyone revisionist tripe. No Christians will be flocking to this one.

For a bunch of hicks who believe that living things spontaneously popped out from rocks and magically 'evolved' after our planet was seeded by magical aliens who live in another invisible dimensional universe, you sure do love to go around telling religious about how our Invisible God in the sky, whose various attributes you yourselves made up in your heads and pretended was what we actually believed in, is preposterous!

    bbsloth, It wasn't solely 40 days of rain. The bible says tat the fountains of the deep broke open. Have you ever studied the contours of the sea floor? I just took an oceanography course and the bottom of the ocean basins are riddled with trenches, volcanoes, and canyons that indicate something broke out from beneath. The greatest depths of the ocean could swallow everest with room to spare. so many people seem to be stuck on this notion that the topography of our planet today is exactly as it was then. You do realize the ridiculous amount of water that is on this planet right? Try imagining this scenario. The vast majority of the ocean surface we see today was actually completely covered by dry land. All the water that makes up todays oceans was contained in a vast honeycomb network of underground caverns. Then, all that water, under intense pressure comes shooting to the surface, covering even everest with water. So, now you've got all this water sitting above land, and the areas of land that the water used to be under, now cannot support the weight of all the water on top, so those areas washout creating the ocean basins we see today. Possible scenario for which there is more than enough water on earth to accommodate.

    Eternal Nerve ending Johnno?

    by TheJudger

    When I burn in hell for eternity how will my flesh and nerve endings remain intact so I may feel that painful anguish forever. I know people who died and came back, many in fact. One of them is a former cocaine abuser. You know what he saw all three times he flat-lined over the course of 10 years. "Blackness" not eternal or cold or scary- just plain blackness. You know what he felt. A sense of peace he has never felt in life. He does not believe in any of the man made gods either. He sorta believed in the christian version before he died. Not anymore. You see there are people who "Think they know" and people who "Know they don't". I'm a "Don't Know" kinda guy. I sin all the time. So does nature- It does it to maintain survival. Sharks killing baby seals to survive, monkeys killing infant monkeys so the mother will go into fuck mode again. Bird pretending to be bigger than they are in size to get laid. Rape, murder, theft, cruelty, and mayhem perpetuates life itself and it is the way life deemed primitive survives. Survival is the prime directive of all living things. We are just the most rationally irrational species on this rock. We know what is right and wrong but we are still slaves to self preservation, desire and need. I'm not going to hell, I'm already in it with people like you making life that much more shitty for pushing this shit into the laws and politics that govern us. Mainly it effect on the freedoms of medical sceince is pissing me off. Aliens seeding the earth huh. Shit coming from nothing but rocks. Here's the deal dude. You are trillions of years old. As old as the universe it self. However you are only made up of the materials present here on earth and you current configuration is only as old as you currently are. The earth weighs six Septillion pounds. You did not add or take any weight from this world when you were conceived. Not even a micron. You dont do so now either. Because the earth sustains you and everything on it. whatever you take in- you return. Be it your shit your piss, your sweat, your dead skin cells, you hair and nails, the carbon you exhale, the electrons you alter when you move- the heat that comes off of your body. It's the Einstein theory. Energy and matter is neither created or destroyed. It can be converted but not destroyed and not created. You see things too simple like. You see a really cool building and you think. Hot damn look at what we've "Created". The word creation in you rmind maintains that strenght of being full created as if from nothing. No this building was not "Created" it was converted from the natural resources and matter present here on earth. When you die- buried or burned. You are not destroyed only converted. The earth will not lose any weight either. when burned you become gas and ash and vapor and carbon. See even as a little sperm being made inside your daddies testicles. You were converted from the resources of the earth. He consumed something with some protein in it. It sustained the bodies order of self making cells and other such shit. Basically what he consumed supplied the body with energy it need to do the biochemical things inside itself to produce sperm. God didn't reach into your dads nut sack and sprinkle sperm in there. Back off on the alien seeded the world crap. That starts off the whole if they made us who made them crap. We come from something. A something very unknown a reason of the event will never be fully discovered. You are here now as this you will become all sorts of stuff when you die, you already have- All that carbon you exhaled. all those nail clippings and the flakes of dead skin cells you shed, and piss and the shit and the sweat and blood. You are earth you return to earth. Enjoy this form while it lasts.

Whatever you will write in english, chances are i'll understand 98% of what you wrote, unless you pull up some obscure judicial terminology. As for the climate changes coments i made, they are based on what the climatic scientists have said about the subject. I know there are some theories on the subject, i go for what looks to be the most plausible, which is, the climatic changes are natural processes, but the one that is happening today is partially influenced by our global activities. I used to be more skeptical about our influence, if any, on the climatic changes, but it seems that as compared with the Medieval Warm Period, today we have a far more steep raise of global temperature then what happened in said middle age period, thanks to the study of the ices of Greenland, whose formation and the type of atmospheric gases trapped and their composition mixture are influenced by the conditions of the time, including atmospheric temperature.

    The bible is indded patchwork of traditions, some of them even contradiction each other. The different sourses are so obvious, they were even named. for example, there's two accounts of the creation of the world in Genesis, and both contradict each other on their testement. There's contradictions of al kinds in the whole body of the bible, made even more blatant if you include the new testement. The biboe is literally a quilt of diffferent traditions who were put together by the strnghs of the traditions, evne if they conflicted with each other. It's quite clear to see that there's a lot of stuff from different centuries mixed up in a pecular from of edition that has little to do with what we undestand of editing today. And that's not even including the new testement. and then there's the fact that there are DIFFERENT VESIONS of the christian bible. OIne day you should try to compare the catholic and the king jame's bible, you would be suprised. Even the naming of the books is different, for christ's sakes (pun intended)!

    DO JEWS REFER TO THE OLD TESTAMENT AS OLD

    by BringingSexyBack

    Or just The Testament?

  • ... there is no such thing as live spontaneous coming out of nothere. That's how how things work. The last time people beleived in life spontaneously appearing from inanimated matter was THE MIDDLE AGES! And it was in the middle ages that idea was proved wrong too. Creationists use coments that were already disproved in the middle ages, for christ's sakes (pun intended)! Life is, to put it in it's most basic scale, a series of complex interactive chemical reactions. In nature, quasi-life chemical reactions that act almost as life exists. The best example are self-replicating proteins, like prions, which the best known type is the one that causes the Bovine spongiform encephalopathy desease, also known as the Mad Cow Desease. Prions acts almost like living things, they replicate, the whole thing. Proteins like prions are a natural consequence of how chemistry works. Given enough favourable conditions, they will happen. Life on Earth is the result of a natural chemical process which, facing the right conditions, happened. With the conditions that existed on the early Earth, it would be an inevitability. What still puzzles scientists this day is the Abiogenesis problem, how life came to be form complex molecules to life itself as we know it. Because so far we hav enot been able to understand the exact process that made it, nor replicating it. But the fact we still don't understand how Abiogenesis happened doesn't mean that it was god who did it. That's the God Of The Gaps fallacy. You don't find god in the gaps of scientific knowledge and then fill it with god to prove his existence. That's a dumb fallacy that was dismissed and criticised for the very first time by Henry Drummond, a 19th evangelist. Yeah, a 19th century evangelist was far more advanced and wise then 21th century creationists. Think about that!

    Just because an author is christian doesn't mean i have to oppose his ideas and views. Fortunatly, the church of old had many rationalists. Ther eis no irony in agreeing withsoembody who actively searched for the truth through reason. I can't expect that a ancient author would be an atheist, since atheist declined as a philosophical current after the avent of christianism as the state religion of the Roman Empire. The epicurians and the atomists found themselves quite scarce on account of presecutions. The destruction of the Library of Alexandria sure scared them away. The thing that always should be applauded and cherished is the search of the truth though reason and not dogma of all people of all ages.

    i think Mickey Bay would be chosen as the director, because he's the one with most experience in kissing biblebelt's ass. All his movies are made to kiss biblebelt's ass.

    ...that was my point. You don't even have to go outside the church to get more reasonable points of view. It makes the contemporary fundamentalist (half of my family) take all the more maddening.

    That is a very well reasoned and nuanced way to approach almost any subject matter - whether you agree with the premise or not.

    Well done. I have always believed it is best to approach any subject from points of view which may be outside our comfort zone. It never surprises me when by doing so, new insight is gleaned. I sometimes have even changed my stance because of such.

    The bible is fileld with lots of cool stories to be made into movies.

    by AsimovLives

    Very much like making movies out of greek and sumerian myths. Lots of cool stories in those myths. Myself i would love to see a movie about Gilgamesh, but done properly, MASTER & COMMANDER style, and not PATHFINDER or CLASH OF THE TITANS (remake) style. But just because one is making a movie out of a bible tale doesn't mean i have to believe what's depicted actually happened. I believe the accurate veracity of any of the bible stories as i believe the veracity of the legends of Perseus, Herakles and Jason and the argonauts. Which is, not much at all.

    Isaac Asimov wrote a book callad A GUIDE TO THE BIBLE.

    by AsimovLives

    He took an historical and antropological perspective to the Bbile, and of course, many things in the good book are found wanting. Either contradictions, lack of internal logic or just plain bulslhitting about real historical events, Asimov show up how the Bible can match with real history. Many times the Bible really screws up history, but there are other times when it's suprising accurate, if we take it in a more parabolic/figurative way. And always, Asimov praised the beauty of many passages inthe bible, specially the hymns and psalms. Asimov called bulslhit on the historicity of the bible, but he loved it's literary merits.
