Last weekend at the NOAH press junket in Beverly Hills, CA, I had a chance to participate in a roundtable Q&A discussion with Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel. As you would expect, we inquired about Darren’s statement suggesting that NOAH is “the least biblical biblical film ever made.” As you will see from his response, the original statement may have been a bit tongue in cheek.
Q: “In a recent profile you called NOAH the least biblical biblical movie ever. I’m wondering what you meant by that…”
A: “What I meant is that it’s been 50 years since people have seen Bible movies. And 50 years ago they made Bible movies in a certain way. They based them in a Judean desert with sandals and robes and long white beards and we wanted to smash those expectations. So that’s exactly what I meant by that. We are reinventing the biblical epic for the 21st century.”
