Russell Crowe is rumored to be in the running to star in the RoboCop remake and Darren Aronofsky's Noah movie.

The Oscar-winning Gladiator star is said to be Black Swan director Aronofsky's first choice to lead the Biblical epic based on the Noah's Ark story.

Liam Neeson is being eyed for an unspecified role in Noah, reports Deadline.

Crowe's involvement in Noah may come down to scheduling, as the actor is also being lined up for Jose Padilha's RoboCop reboot.

Variety's Jeff Sneider revealed on his Twitter account that Crowe is "in the mix" for the title role in the action blockbuster.

"They (RoboCop and Noah) shoot at the same time, so who knows?" Sneider said.

Crowe can next be seen starring in The Man with the Iron Fists and Man of Steel as Superman's Kryptonian father Jor-El.
