Jennifer Connelly is in talks to star in 'Noah'.
'Black Swan' director Darren - who previously worked with Jennifer on 'Requiem For Dream' - is known for his dark vision and his take on the well-known story has been described as a ''fantasy epic'', with Russell Crowe's Noah set to be played as an embittered nature lover disillusioned with humanity.
The tale sees Noah given a mission by God to build an ark to save the world from a forthcoming flood.
Russell - who starred alongside Jennifer in 2001 movie 'A Beautiful Mind' - was confirmed for the titular role in the 'Noah' in March.
Darren said in a statement at the time: ''I'd like to thank Paramount and Regency for backing my team's work to breathe new life into the biblical epic.
''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.''
Filming is scheduled to begin in August in New York and Iceland.
'Noah' is set for release in March 2014.
