It was previously reported that Darren Aronofsky was planning a biblical follow-up to last year's "The Fountain," and now its been revealed that the flick in question will revolve around the story of Noah and the Ark.

Aronofsky tells British paper The Guardian that "Noah was the first person to plant vineyards and drink wine and get drunk. It's there in the Bible - it was one of the first things he did when he reached land. There was some real survivor's guilt going on there. He's a dark, complicated character."

Aronofsky's plans for the film reach back to before his debut feature "Pi," back when he was a young teenager who won a United Nations poetry competition. His entry was about the end of the world as seen through Noah's eyes.

Aronofsky first dabbled with the Noah story in screenplay form after Brad Pitt left "The Fountain." Now, the biblical epic is several drafts along.

Darren Aronofsky says to MTV News that one day he'd like another go at editing his sci-fi romance feature "The Fountain".

"It wouldn’t be a ‘director’s cut'...more like an alternate story told with the addition of unused footage from the first go-round. This would be a complicated project on a couple of levels, though, and it’s at least a few years away."

Upon release the film flopped financially and received tepidly positive reviews, yet it scored some very adamant supporters and has grown in appreciation in the past two years.

My quick review:

The Fountain

A man (Hugh Jackman) travels through time on a quest for immortality and to save the woman (Rachel Weisz) he loves. As a 16th-century conquistador, Tomas searches for the legendary Fountain of Youth. As a present-day scientist, he desperately struggles to cure the cancer that is killing his wife. Finally, as a 26th-century human being in deep space, Tom begins to grasp the mysteries of life, love and death.

Yet another tale of a human being trying to find out who he really is. The film looks gorgeous and the story is extremely involving and touching. Highly underrated.

Director: Darren Aronofsky
Running time: 96 minutes
Released: 2006
