Aronofsky's Epic Biblical Adaptation Becomes A Graphic Novel
Via Slash Film:
Earlier this year, it was announced that Darren Aronofsky would be releasing a comic book version of his epic Noah script to help generate interest in the pricey project. After all, the tactic worked when Brad Pitt bailed on The Fountain and the director needed to raise the bloated corpse of that film from the dead.

Seasoned fighter, mage and healer but he only wanted peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah was beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually he began to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He had decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gave Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth …
If you polly vous francais, or just want to look at the perty pictures, you can check out this gallery from publisher Le Lombard. I got news for you- this ain't your grandma's biblical epic. The original author of the Noah story, God, could not be reached for comment.
