Darren Aronofksy’s Noah epic was many things—Lord of the Rings wannabe, fanciful interpretation of biblical lore, not as controversial as it was made out to be—but a comedy it was not. Unified Pictures is looking to remedy that oversight by making their own Noah movie, and this one’s going to be an all-CGI family friendly comedy. The focus will be on the animals, particularly a lonely aardvark named Gilbert who, according to the press release:

“becomes the reluctant leader of a ragtag group of misfit animals that need to be led to the mighty ark before the impending flood. Along their journey, they band together to conquer unforeseen obstacles, and ultimately, Gilbert discovers within himself the inner strength and ingenuity to prove that in a world of ‘twos,’ he was truly destined to be ‘the one’.

Ah, yes. Just like the Bible says. Kung Fu Panda director John Stevenson will helm the film which is imaginatively titled Noah’s Ark
