Might Russell Crowe play Noah and Robocop?

Russell Crowe: still very popular!

The Oscar-winning actor is reportedly being courted by Darren Aronofsky to star in his epic retelling of the Biblical tale of Noah’s Ark, titled Noah.

According to Deadline, there is no deal in place, but things are looking good for the pairing. Liam Neeson is also said to be in talks for a role in the pic.

But wait – there’s more! This isn’t the only big film for which Crowe is in contention.

According to Variety’s Jeff Sneider, the TOFOG front-man could be our next Robocop.

He tweeted thusly:

“Sure, Russell Crowe, MIGHT star in Aronofsky’s NOAH… but do you know what else he MIGHT star in? Three words: Ro. Bo. Cop. #FloatThisBoat”

Brazilian director José Padilha (Elite Squad) is remaking the Paul Verhoeven classic for MGM. Ironically, Aronofsky was long attached to helm this very film.

More news as it develops!
