Emma Watson - Emma Watson In Talks For Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah'

It looks as though Emma Watson has nabbed the 'young female' role in Darren Aronofsky's forthcoming movie 'Noah'. The role was originally thought to be going to Saoirse Ronan but it looks as though Watson has swiped the opportunity from under her nose, according to Deadline. Variety have also reported that Dakota Fanning was the first choice for the part but her schedule wasn't workable. So it looks as though Emma Watson has got lucky this time around. She's currently in talks with the Black Swan director to star in the movie alongside Russell Crowe.
Based on the story of the biblical ark-builder, the film would include Watson in the role of Ila, a young woman who is involved in a relationship with Noah's son, Shem. Jennifer Connelly is thought to be one of the actresses in the running for the role of Noah's wife. Noah's two sons are currently thought to be played by Douglas Booth and Logan Lerman, according to a report from Collider. If Emma secures the role, it will mark a huge step of progress for the actress, who needs to choose her roles wisely, following the ending of the hugely successful Harry Potter franchise.
She recently filmed Sofia Coppola's latest movie 'The Bling Ring' and is also about to feature in Guillermo Del Toro's Beauty and the Beast reboot. Currently, Noah has been scheduled for a March 28, 2014 release date.
