In her post-"Harry Potter" career, Emma Watson has already racked up some impressive credits with grade-A filmmakers. Last year, she had a supporting role in the well-received My Week With Marilyn," and she just wrapped her turn as a bad girl in Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring."
Watson would play Ila, a young woman on that famous ark, who, according to Deadline, develops a "close relationship" with the character Shem, played by Douglas Booth.
"Noah" will feature Russell Crowe as the title character, the man who gathers two of every animal and builds an enormous boat to continue life on Earth after an apocalyptic flood.
The ambitious project has added a few other castmembers in recent weeks with Watson's "Perks of Being a Wallflower" co-star Logan Lerman and Booth both signing on to play Noah's sons Ham and Shem, respectively.
Watson may have been sending her fans a small hint about potentially joining the film. On May 22, the actress tweeted, "Just added @DarrenAronofsky. I love his work. P.S. don't be put off by his profile picture! : ) x."

Watson should have an eventful few months if she eventually signs on to "Noah." Aronofsky is reportedly seeking a July start date for an eventual release in March of 2014. Her next film, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," is set for a limited in September, and "The Bling Ring" should hit theaters sometime next year.
