A New Biblically Accurate Story Of Noah’s Ark Is Coming To Movie Theaters
A new version of the story of Noah’s ark that follows closer to Biblical account is coming to the big screen next year.
In 2014, the Darren Aronofsky written and directed movie Noah pulled in over $100 million at the box office with actors like Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins taking part in the film. Now, director Tim Chey is gearing up to remake the movie which will be released in a select 2,500 theaters next year.
Chey’s film is called The Flood and plans to follow the Biblical story found in Genesis more accurately than the 2014 movie based on Noah’s ark.
“I wanted to make a more Biblically-correct version of the Noah’s Ark story,” Chey said in a statement. “This film will also focus on the total devastation from the worldwide flood.”
The director who has worked on films like Freedom and Slamma Jamma explained the importance of making the film since he believes we are living in the last days before the return of Jesus Christ.
“I believe we’re living in the last days before Christ’s return,” says Chey, “so this makes the film more timely. The Lord himself says as it is in the days of Noah, so shall it be when the Son of Man returns.”
Even though the role of Noah has yet to be cast, Dennis Quaid, Christian Bale, Kevin Costner, Nicolas Cage, Chris Pratt and Pierce Brosnan are among the actors being considered. Chey said he is leaning on God to help him decide.
“It’s going to be fun finding our Noah. Just leaning on God’s wisdom,” he said. “[Brosnan] did a great job as Robinson Crusoe many forget. And Quaid did a phenomenal job playing Doc Holiday in ‘Wyatt Earp’.”
Before The Flood is released in October 2019, Chey will release another project next April called The Islands. The film starring Academy-Award winner Mira Sorvino is based on a true story of a Hawaiian queen who found Christ and challenged the volcano god of the time over 200 years ago.
