The History Channel tackled the entire Bible earlier this year, but acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky is zeroing in on one story in particular.
The "Black Swan" helmer has taken a dive into the tale of Noah and the Ark, and has come up on the other side with a dramatic action film.
In addition to directing the project, Aronofsky also wrote the screenplay, and the first trailer for the film depicts Noah first having disturbing visions of the destruction that awaits, and then accepting his challenge with steely resolve.
Russell Crowe portrays the Biblical figure in the upcoming release, which also stars Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, and Anthony Hopkins as Methusulah.
Scheduled to arrive on March 28, 2014, "Noah" isn't the only movie in the works about a Biblical hero. Ridley Scott's "Exodus," slated for December 2014, stars Christian Bale as Moses.
