Recently, Darren Aronofsky‘s first big budget film, Noah, wrapped shooting in Iceland and moved to Long Island for further filming. So far the only pieces we’ve seen of the film is a lone close-up of Russell Crowe as the titular ark builder and some assorted production pictures from Aronofsky’s Twitter.
The most recent look, from Long Island, is anything but official, but it does gives us more of a sense of how the film will look. In fact it’s sort of difficult to describe the costume design on display. It doesn’t so much look like ancient cloth as it looks like post-apocalyptic scraps.
Noah will follow the biblical story of the ark builder who god warned of a coming, cleansing flood. He then sets about building this instrument of life’s salvation but of course conflict with non-believers arises.
It’ll undoubtedly be interesting to see what Aronofsky does with a budget of this size (reportedly $150 million), but we’ll have to wait until March 2014 to see how all that shakes out.
