First stills of “Noah” characters have been released and we can take a first look on Emma as Ila in the upcoming feature.
Although we have yet to see any footage from Darren Aronofsky‘s biblical epic Noah, it looks Paramount is gearing up their campaign for the big-budget March 2014 tentpole. After an official still landed of Russell Crowe as our main character last summer during production, images of the main ensemble, featuring Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone and Logan Lerman, have now arrived.
Co-written by Ari Handel and Aronofsky, the film portrays the titular Biblical hero as aa man who loves Earth and all of its animal inhabitants, but has become disillusioned with the way humans have treated their planet. It is also said to focus on Noah’s alcoholic tendencies, but it won’t go the usual dark Aronofsky mile, as it’ll likely take the PG-13 route. Check out the new images below, showing off Aronofsky’s rugged style, as well as a brief interview clip from Crowe during the Man of Steel tour, discussing the character.

Emma Watson’s World: Stardom, Style, and School
Emma Watson toughens up, from an edgy new role in ‘The Bling Ring’ to her no-nonsense take on dealing with fame.
One thing about Emma Watson: She has never been arrested. Nor, so far as anyone knows, has she ever eloped, been kicked off a movie set, or unleashed an angry rant on Twitter. Under normal circumstances, none of this would be particularly noteworthy. But Emma, 23, doesn’t live under normal circumstances, and she hasn’t for a very long time. Instead, the Paris-born, Oxford-raised actress is a self-made young Hollywood success, and more to the point, she is exceedingly famous thanks to a decision she made when she was only nine (and, of course, the dozen-odd years of hard work that followed).
“I think, in a way, I was very protected during Harry Potter, because I was working all the time,” Emma muses, taking a sip of tea. Dressed in a pair of dusky gray jeans, two layered cotton T-shirts, and a chic black blazer, she’s sitting in the corner of a posh but deserted hotel restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, open just so we can conduct the interview for her fourth Teen Vogue cover. “I would get in the car, go to the studio, and go home,” she says. Whenever possible, she continued to attend school and hang out with her childhood friends.
As a result, Emma explains, it took an improbably long time for her to understand how unusual her existence had become. It wasn’t until she enrolled at Brown University, in 2009, that she began to grasp the enormity of her renown. “It sounds stupid,” she admits, “or completely unbelievable, but that was when I really realized that I was famous. There are still days when I deal with it horribly and there are days when I deal with it really well.” She felt as though everything had been “turned upside down.”
It throws her latest role into sharp relief: Emma plays Nicki, a fame-hungry would-be reality star, in this summer’s ripped-from-the-headlines crime caper The Bling Ring. Based on the true story of a group of image-obsessed teenage burglars who targeted the homes of Tinseltown’s best dressed, the film, written and directed by Sofia Coppola, offered Emma the opportunity to take on a completely different kind of character: a mildly villainous party girl who’d do almost anything for a taste of the kind of attention Emma’s been dealing with for more than a decade. It also gave her the chance to utter the sure-to-be-timeless line, “Come on, let’s go to Paris’s. I want to rob.”
Emma Watson Plots ‘Queen of the Tearling’ Franchise With ‘Harry Potter’ Producer
Warner Bros. will distribute ‘Game of Thrones’-esque franchise
Warner Bros., Emma Watson and her “Harry Potter” producer David Heyman are teaming up on another adaptation with Watson attached to star in “The Queen of the Tearling.”
The project is in development as a director and writer still need to be found. Warner Bros. acquired the rights to the book and will distribute.
Heyman will produce along with Jeff Clifford through Heyman’s Heyday Films banner. Watson will exec produce.
Book is part of Erika Johansen’s fantasy trilogy whose 19-year-old female lead was partly inspired by a speech the author heard Barack Obama give in 2007. Harper Collins will publish the trilogy, which has been described as a female “Game of Thrones” beginning in 2014. The book is set three centuries after an environmental catastrophe when a malevolent Red Queen holds considerable power.
Courtenay Valenti and Racheline Benveniste are overseeing for the studio.
Since her run as Hermione Granger ended, Watson has appeared in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and “The Bling Ring,” as well as in movies with more commercial appeal. She has biblical epic “Noah” bowing next spring, has a juicy part as herself in Sony’s “This Is the End” and is also attached to star in Guillermo del Toro’s “Beauty.”
She is repped by WME and Markham Froggatt Irwin. Johansen is repped by WME.
I added lots of HQ photos of Emma during “The Bling Ring” Press Conference a couple of weeks ago.
