Los Angeles, Oct 18 – After several test screenings Paramount asked director Darren Aronofsky to make some changes in the film Noah, his big-budget biblical epic.
The studio is determined that Noah, with a budget of over US$ 125 million, not to become a major disaster.
In recent weeks, the study has conducted test screenings aimed at Christian and Jewish audiences.
But the Oscar-nominated director is apparently resisting those changes, according to sources.
Paramount vice-chairman Rob Moore said that the movie was simply going through the “normal preview process,” and that the studio “allowed for a very long post-production period, which allowed for a lot of test screenings,” according to local media.
Russell Crowe stars as Noah, the righteous Old Testament hero who built a giant ark to protect his family and the Earth´s animals against an apocalyptic flood sent by God to destroy the wicked. The film also features Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Ray Winstone.
The premiere is scheduled for March 2014.
