Darren Aronofsky is in high demand after Black Swan‘s $12 million budget spun into $315 million at the box office. Suffice it to say, he can have any project he wants. Or drop out of any Wolverine-based project that he wants.

Right now, Hollywood is abuzz because of a package he’s sent around for Noah, the edgy retelling of Noah‘s Ark. John Logan is rewriting the original script by Aronofsky and New Regency is looking to take a co-financier role. And anyone else not scared off by the memory of Evan Almighty is welcome to throw in. He’s looking for a budget of $130 million for the project which would be so much easier to get had The Fountain never happened.

Plot details are scarce but I’m guessing that Noah gets addicted to diet pills and a pair of giraffes scissor one another. And then a lion fed up with his fall from celebrity punches a deli slicer. Again, these plot details are unconfirmed. (Deadline)
