In the latest casting rumour, Emma Watson is reportedly in talks to co-star in Noah, Darren Aronofsky’s adaption of the biblical story of Noah and the ark. Deadline and Variety both say Emma would “play Ila, a young woman who develops a close relationship with Noah’s son, Shem.” Russel Crowe is cast as Noah, Douglas Booth as Shem, and Logan Lerman as Ham, Noah’s other son.
Emma recently “followed” Aronofsky on twitter which does seem to support the rumour. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
Update: Emma has been added to the cast on IMDB. We have not yet heard from Emma, but some sites are reporting that she has accepted. Ray Winstone is in talks now and it is rumored that Jennifer Connelly may play Noah’s wife.
