Emma Watson: 'Noah' with Russell Crowe & Douglas Booth?

Emma Watson is in negotiations to join the cast of Darren Aronofsky‘s upcoming film Noah.

The 22-year-old English actress would play Ila, “a young woman who develops a close relationship with Noah’s son Shem,” Deadline reports.

Russell Crowe will star as the title character, while Douglas Booth will play Shem.

Emma‘s The Perks of Being a Wallflower co-star, Logan Lerman, will reportedly take on the role of Noah’s other son, Ham.

Jennifer Connelly “is one of the actresses in contention” to be cast as Noah’s wife.

    Is Douglas Booth by any chance related to Keira Knightley? They look so much alike it’s freaky.. they could be twins

    Emma’s beautiful!

  • ms_levitt

    wow this is could be really a chance for emma to bring her career to a higher level. aronofsky really stands for quality (pi, fountain, black swan)

  • Chris

    With every film Emma signs on for, that degree slowly starts to look like a pipe dream than an actual goal for Emma. I truly hope she finds a way to continue juggling both

  • LaCroix

    A step in the right direction for a serious actress. I like how after HP she signs on to do films to better her career. All the best to her.

  • Naaa LaCroix

    Hey LaCroix. I bet you wouldn’t praise Kstew like how you are doing it for Emma. She’s another supporting (5th or sixth) like in Marilyn. That’s not being a serious actress. It’s hardly any screen time and this won’t be out for another 2 years.

  • kwan

    that sound cool love Emma

  • dizzy

    Aww, good for Emma! I’m happy for her.

  • Narcisistas

    Darren Aronofsky is good director but if Emma Watson’s wants to work with him i hope she has seen all the movies he has directed because Darren is well know for…

  • Natasha (Nataliya) Stasyi

    @LaCroix: The reason you always write in a bold type means everything you say’s extremely important?

  • Macy

    And why is KStew being brought up again? I believe this is all about Emma and the upcoming Noah film. Nowhere do I see Kstew’s name. Stop being a kid, go to her news if you want to.

  • Macy@

    LaCroix is well known for hating on Kstew on . It’s a miracle to see her liking someone. Typical it is Emma Watson. Bland and safe actress. Kstew plays leads in all her films. Emma plays 5th supporting. One is truly more talented than the other and LaCroix has no place to judge Kstew and praise Emma’s talents.

  • Manoush

    Russel crowe and jennifer connelly looked so good together in a beautiful mind, hope she’d be cast here too!!

  • dizzy

    Jfc, can we not with the Emma and Kristen comparisons. It’s dumb, juvenile, and mean-spirited. Why must the stans defend one of them while insulting the other? They’re both great in their own ways, so stop the petty fights. It’s embarrassing. Oh, and I didn’t realize Emma played “5th supporting” in HP, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, and the upcoming “Beauty and the Beast” and “Your Voice in My Head”. My bad. Girl, stop. Kristen has also had supporting roles in the past. A supporting role is nothing to mock or be embarrassed about.

  • Chelsea

    Good supporting roles with fantastic directors are better than weak lead roles in mediocre movies…just saying.
