Russell Crowe Gets Ready for the Flood

First image of actor in title role of Noah; image tweeted by director

Director Darren Aronofsky has been active on Twitter while filming his upcoming epic, Noah, in Iceland. Thursday, he released the first image of his star character, played by Russell Crowe.

Aronofsky gave USA Today the first look. The newspaper wrote that the director "has taken to his Twitter feed to give daily updates on Noah for his followers, including casting news—confirming Anthony Hopkins as Noah's ageless grandfather Methuselah, for example—and teasing to the existence of angelic Nephilim in the film."

Aronofsky wrote on one recent tweet, "Nephilim wuz here," while another included a picture of a puffin; no word yet on whether puffins will actually board the ark.

The film is slated to release in the spring of 2014.
