CATEGORIES Movie NewsIt looks like Noah's Ark is going to set sail without Christian Bale. According to Deadline, the 'Dark Knight Rises' star is shooting the Terrence Malick-directed films 'Lawless' and 'Knight of Cups,' back to back, which would conflict with the production dates on 'Noah,' which Darren Aronofsky co-wrote with John Logan ('Gladiator') and will direct.
The movie is a retelling of the classic Biblical storyline, presumably without heroin needles, space travel or ballerinas with tortured souls.
'Noah' is set to hit theaters in 2013.
UPDATE: Per Variety, Michael Fassbender could replace Bale in 'Noah,' but no offer has been made yet. Just keep that in mind for future reference.
