The movie, which will start its production this July in Iceland and New York, will retell the classic biblical tale of Noah's Ark. Aronofsky wrote the film alongside Ari Handel and John Logan (Hugo).

"I’d like to thank Paramount and Regency for backing my team's work to breathe new life into the biblical epic," Aronofsky said. "I rejoice that Russell Crowe will be by my side on this adventure. It's his immense talent that helps me to sleep at night. I look forward to being wowed by him every day."

Noah will sail into theaters on March 28, 2014.
