Pope Francis has cancelled a meeting with the creative team behind 'Noah'.
The meeting was set for 8.30 am on Wednesday (19.03.14) so the pope could lend a blessing to the biblical epic, which is based on the story of Noah's Ark from The Book Of Genesis, prior to the US release at the end of March.
Sources told Variety.com, the Vatican cancelled the meeting ''over concerns word would leak, causing a spectacle as Crowe and Aronofsky landed in Rome.''
Crowe previously reached out to Francis on Twitter, urging him to watch the movie which contains a ''powerful , fascinating'' message.
He wrote: ''Dear Holy Father @Pontifex @Pontifex_it @DarrenAronofsky #Noah film. Screening?The message of the film is powerful , fascinating , resonant (sic)''
