Paramount Might Team Up With New Regency for ‘Noah’

Darren Aronofsky looks to make his first fully mainstream project with Noah, based on the ark-building Biblical figure of the same name. However, the film, described as “a sprawling fantasy epic,” is currently set to cost more than $100 million, meaning that multiple studios would have to pitch in for funding.

New Regency has been on board since day one, but now it seems that Paramount will partner with New Regency. Deadline Hollywood reports that bidding for Noah was between Paramount and Fox.

Aronofsky was set to move out of art-house territory with 20th Century Fox’s The Wolverine, but he dropped out, citing the distance between where filming would take place and his family. Considering that he wrote the script for Noah, it seems like the perfect mainstream project for him to tackle.
