Monday came with a interesting announcement for picture-goers. Darren Aronofsky has Douglas Booth and Logan Lerman casted in Noah, the Biblical epic. The film’s being co-financed by Paramount and New Regency and is Aronofsky’s follow-up to Black Swan.
The two will co-star for sure with Russell Crowe, who was approached for the role of Noah. Douglas Booth will play Shem, one of the three sons of the biblical character. Logan Lerman was casted as Ham, Noah’s older son. No names were revealed for Noah’s third son.
Still to be cast are the three daughter-in-law, wives of Shem, Ham and Japhet and also Noah’s own wife. It is speculated that producers want Jennifer Connelly for that role. She co-starred Russell before in the 2001 drama “A Beautiful Mind”.
Our reporters have found out that the team is in search for a perfect match to impersonate Noah’s nemesis in the film. Although it has been said that Liam Neeson might take the part, we know for sure that will not happen.

He became more prominent after his starring role in the 2010 fantasy adventure Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. He made a good impression also in the 2011 remake of The Three Musketeers, portraying D`Artagnan in a acclaimed manner.
Even though they have some experience having worked already with some great film names, even with Russell Crowe, it will be interesting to see how they will manage these roles.
