Jennifer Connelly And Russell Crowe To Re-Team For Noah

Jennifer Connelly and Russell Crowe are looking to team up again for Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic, Noah.

According to Deadline, Crowe will play the titular role and Connelly will play his wife. It was originally reported that Connelly was circling the project but nothing had been confirmed, until today.

The last time Crowe and Connelly were in a film together was for Ron Howard’s Best Picture winner, A Beautiful Mind. Connelly ended up taking home the award for Best Actress for her performance and Crowe was nominated but lost to Denzel Washington. Could this re-team mean another nomination for both actors? It’s a bit early to tell, but I think there’s the potential.

Noah also stars Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth, Emma Watson and Logan Lerman. The film is currently in pre-production with a release date set for March 28, 2014.
