If you’re building an ark of biblical proportions, it’s going to have to be huge.

And it certainly seems like Noah director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) is subscribing to the go big or go home philosophy. He tweeted a picture of the building of the ark, along with the message, “I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it’s a reality. Genesis 6:14″”

Genesis 6:14 reads “Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.”

Aronofsky’s epic will star Russell Crowe as Noah and will tell the story of Noah’s ark. Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Douglas Booth are also involved.
