Emma Watson is in talks to join Darren Aronofsky’s cast of Noah, it has been recently announced, an upcoming Biblical retelling of the classic tale of Noah and his ark.
Already starring Russell Crowe as the Biblical ark builder, Watson is in discussions to play Ila, a young woman who develops a close relationship with Noah’s son, Shem, who will be played by Douglas Booth.
Noah’s other son, Ham, will then be played by Logan Lerman, who Watson is set to star alongside in the upcoming romance adaptation, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, which is set to be released later this year.
As for other casting, it was announced earlier this week that Ray Winstone is set to be play the film’s villain, and still to be cast is Noah’s wife, Naameth, for which Jennifer Connelly is said to be in talks for too.
Noah is scheduled to open in theaters around the US on 28th March 2014.
I’m so looking forward to seeing her in Perks of Being a Wallflower as Sam. I didn’t LOVE that book, but I think she was such a good choice. I wonder who she would play in Noah.
I’ve said who she’ll play in Noah, a girl who develops a relationship with one of Noah’s son.
As for Perks Of Being A Wallflower, I’m looking forward to seeing her in that but I think it’s such a different role from what we are used to that it might be hard to get used to.
Oh sorry I must have missed that part. I swear I read that. I wonder if she will be taken on the boat or he will have to leave her behind. I think Russel Crowe will be good, very different from Steve Carrel in the funny adaption a few years ago, haha.
I saw her in an indie film not too long ago and she was this sexy teenage girl driving cross country so I think that made it much easier for me to see her as Sam. I will have to look up who is playing her brother because that might be interesting.
I’ve also said who will be playing the two brothers haha.
What film was that with Watson in then? Sounds interesting.
I’m not sure about Russel Crowe, I think he’s an actor I find it very hard to relate to and therefore don’t take anything away from his characters, but at the same time I do think he suits the role too.
