Douglas Booth and Logan Lerman join Aronofsky's Noah

Story by Jack Foley

DOUGLAS Booth and Logan Lerman have joined the cast of Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic Noah.

According to Deadline, the pair will star alongside Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Saoirse Ronan in the movie, which will reportedly offer cinema-goers a close re-telling of the story of Noah and his escape from the flood carrying two of each animal.

The film is based on a script that was co-written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and subsequently revised by John Logan (of Gladiator and Hugo fame).

Booth, who will star opposite True Grit‘s Hailee Steinfeld in the forthcoming Romeo and Juliet, will play Noah’s son Shem, while Lerman, who will next be seen in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, will appear as another son, Ham.

Booth is hitherto best known for playing Boy George in the BBC adaptation of Worried About The Boy as well as Pip in the Beeb’s acclaimed re-invention of Charles Dickens.

Lerman, meanwhile, shot to prominence in Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief and also played D’Artagnan in Paul WS Anderson’s The Three Musketeers.
