Here we’re getting our first look at Russell Crowe, dressed in all brown, on the set of the upcoming biblical epic, ‘Noah’. Crowe plays the title role, the Old Testament patriarch who builds an ark to protect his family and all the earth’s animals from the flood as God punishes the world.
“I’m 48, definitely feeling my age, but I have never been stronger,” Crowe tweeted. “My musculature is not fine or ripped, but it’s real, Ark builders muscle.”
Jennifer Connelly, who previously starred with Crowe in 2001’s ‘A Beautiful Mind’, reunites with him to play Noah’s wife, Naameth. Emma Watson will play Noah’s adopted daughter. Crowe tweeted back in July, “My kids are flipping out that I’m going to work with Hermione.”
Back in July Darren Aronofsky tweeted a photo of the ark being constructed for the film. He wrote, “‘I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it’s a reality. Genesis 6:14 #noah”
Aronofsky has also been sharing other “Noah” tidbits, including tweeting photos of goofy-looking extras and information about the ark’s construction. And on Tuesday, he tweeted, “not sure it’s true but today is the actual anniversary of the Noah flood. just saying.”
Crowe also joined in the fun, at one point tweeting that the under-construction ark was leaking, and at another posting “Currently the status of my beard is “Epic”.
The actor made the news last week due to reports that he had separated from Danielle Spencer, his wife of nine years.
“Noah” floods theaters in 2014.
