Darren Aronofsky, One, Paramount, Nil, - Director Gets The 'Noah' Cut He Wanted


Russell Crowe Darren Aronofsky Paramount Pictures

Darren Aronofsky came to loggerheads with Paramount over his biblical epic, Noah, starring Russell Crowe. The problem lay with the final cut, and the perennial battle between auteur and Hollywood studio reared its ugly head once more.

Multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Aronofsky and Paramount have been at odds over the version of Noah that will get a full release on March 28. It's still not clear whether the director - whose last effort Black Swan grossed $329 million worldwide and won an Oscar for Natalie Portman - has held onto the right to final cut.
