RoS: Looking forward to the projects you have coming up, what is the situation with the Noah project?I wonder if part of the thinking behind the graphic novel idea is its similarity to storyboarding? And, of course, it's also a cheap way to test out the market for such a film, whilst simultaneously building that market up.
DA: We have a script actually, it is a script but there is more work to do. We’re actually going to do a graphic novel of it right now, we’re just starting it, and we’re hiring a writer.
RoS: And are you shopping the script around to studios and actors…?
DA: There is an actor attached, but I’m not going to say who, but he’s a big movie star.
RoS: Steve Carell… [joking]
DA: [With a smile] Yeah, exactly… Eventually we’ll set it up, but we’re just figuring it out. It’s a very difficult film to get made and we’re slowly working on it to get it put together.
The September interview with /film is also contains slightly odd quotation:
It's the end of the world and it's the second most famous ship after the Titanic... I think it's really timely because it's about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what's going on on this planet. So I think it's got these big, big themes that connect with us. Noah was the first environmentalist. He's a really interesting character.Second most famous?
