Actor Liev Schreiber is a leading contender for the villain role in Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming biblical epic “Noah”, set for a March 28, 2014 release.

The Jewish actor is well known for his roles in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, “Defiance”, “Salt”, and for his writing and directing of “Everything is Illuminated”.

Paramount Studios and New Regency are providing financing for the film, which will include Russell Crowe as Noah.  Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth have also committed to the project.  Rumors began to circulate late last week that Emma Watson, who starred in the Harry Potter film franchise, may also be close to signing on.

“No matter how the final product turns out, it’s a delight to see the filmmaker embark on a giant passion project like this, all because his labor of love Black Swan turned into an unlikely box office success, allowing him to do absolutely anything he wants for his followup,” writes Katey Rich at

“After watching him struggle for years to make The Fountain, Aronofsky deserves to finally be embarking on an epic exactly the way he wants it.”

    If someone claims to be Jewish, how come the word semite is not written in the Bible? What happen when to those that add to the Bible (Revelation 22:18). Noah’s ark is the Bible (1st Samuel 4:22). From the children of Israel to the children of light, which belong to the God of Jacob. The state of Israel is with king David

    And it looks like Ray Winstone (no, not Ray Weinstein, originally) is playing the villain now.

    So, there you go, it’s just Lerman. And Aronofsky.

    Yeah, Liev Schreiber, who is 50% Jewish, may be in the movie. But Logan Lerman, who is 100% Jewish, has already been cast.

    Way to miss that fact.
