Rumors of their involvement have been circulating for the last week or so, and it looks like things are now set in place with Paramount honcho Adam Goodman confirming the addition of Jennifer Connelly and Saoirse Ronan to Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" for what he describes as a "perfect combination of casting."

The two actresses join Russell Crowe who will star as a man who has become disillusioned with the way humans have treated the planet and its animals, and then builds one helluva boat. No word on exactly which roles Connelly and Ronan will be taking, but Noah was a married man with three wedded sons, so there's plenty of female roles to go around. We're presuming Connelly is in line to play Mrs. Noah for what will be a reunion with Aronofsky after their time together on "Requiem For A Dream."

There's also a villain role of some sort floating around, which was reportedly being eyed by Liam Neeson, however, his name hasn't been heard of regarding this project for a while. Either way, Aronoksky going biblical is something we can't wait to see.

"It will be a big, robust production and will have tremendous scale. It's the perfect combination of casting and a remarkable adventure," Goodman explained. "This isn't what you think of when you think of Darren, but it will be very true to him as a filmmaker. It will be PG-13 and will likely cost around $125 million."

Due to front cameras this summer, "Noah" will take its time and won't flood cinemas until March 28, 2014. [THR]
