Darren Aronofsky’s Noah is set to begin filming next spring, but the first volume of the graphic novel is already out in Europe. Now, I can’t speak French, but it looks pretty epic. There seems to be some Mad Max style overtones to the story as well as the appearance of anther big biblical story, the Tower of Babel.
Here’s the official synopsis:
It was a world without hope, a world with no rain and no crops, dominated by warlords and their barbarian hordes. In this cruel world, Noah was a good man. Seasoned fighter, mage and healer but he only wanted peace for him and his family. Yet every night, Noah was beset by visions of an endless flood, symbolizing the destruction of all life. Gradually he began to understand the message sent him by the Creator. He had decided to punish the men and kill them until the last. But he gave Noah a last chance to preserve life on Earth
