Saoirse Ronan Joins Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah”

While this is not The Host related, Saoirse Ronan is keeping herself busy by adding more film projects to her resume.  She just turned 18 a couple weeks ago, so she is now considered an adult in the US.  She will have less restrictions in regards to how many hours she can work a day and she does not have to go to school.

Darren Aronofsky has had a film project called Noah on his plate for a while.  Cast members are only now being announced.  Saoirse Ronan will join Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly in the film about the Bible character, Noah.  It has a proposed release date of March 2014 with a $125 million budget.  There is no mention of the character that Saoirse will play.

Congratulations to Ms. Ronan for landing this part, and one year after The Host is out, we will be seeing her in Noah.  I hope she is leaving room to star in sequels to The Host, that is if the film does well at the box office.

    I know she will have it under control, but all these roles she’s taking on make me worry for the host.

      Granted she only shot one film before The Host, and all rumored roles she’s up for come after, I’m not sure how that negatively effects The Host movie.

    • I was sort of voicing the same thoughts to my wife when she reminded me that they have only filmed for 2 months and that the basic filming is over on April 28th. At first I thought that it wasn’t very long to be filming… but then she said, “Remember, the movie is only 2 hours long…”. Well, yea that makes sense. I wonder if that is normal for other movies as well.  For some reason I always thought they filmed a lot longer.

        Mr. Fuller,

        A movie eying a theatrical release can take up to one month to a year to shoot depending the budget and other factors. 2-3 months is the standard duration of a shoot unless it has a truly small budget. In that case, shooting could be only a month. An example for this would be The Kids Are All Right which took about a month to shoot (Ruffalo’s part took one week) and Shame by Steve McQueen.

        Some shoots last 8 months (Hugo) – which went over budget due to it’s prolonged shooting – to six (Jackson’s The Lovely Bones & Fincher’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). The longest shoot to my knowledge was Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut which lasted about a year.

        Hope that helps.

           To add one to what I was saying, it’s said that The Host started shooting on February 14 with a wrap date of April 30. If I did my math correctly, that’s about 11 weeks. So 2 months and 3 weeks = standard duration of a modestly budgeted films (The Host budget is $45MILL).

        Don’t worry 🙂 she has said she’s writing the other two books. She was joking ironically how she’ll have to rush to write them because the film company has given her ten years to write them.

    Remember this isn’t an official announcement. The part in cinemblend’s article where she’s mentioned is in brackets so that could mean:

    A) the THR writer which cinemablend refers to  is just using rumored names to give face to the “combination of perfect casting” or

     B) Andrew Goodman, President of Production at Paramount, actually mentioned their names but due limitations of space the writer had to bracket their names.
