Last week, filming on the New York set of Noah was temporarily halted due to superstorm Sandy. However, the cast and crew were back at work on Friday, according to a tweet from Darren Aronofsky.
The LA Times reported:
Hurricane Sandy has shut down production on at least half a dozen New York television shows and feature films, but none more ironically than Russell Crowe’s “Noah.”
The outdoor ark, which measures 450 feet long and is 75 feet tall and 45 feet wide, was not intended to be seaworthy. With production on the film wrapping up soon, the ark was scheduled to be used only sparingly in the weeks ahead and was partially dismantled over the last several days.
Emma Watson tweeted about the delay:
I take it that the irony of a massive storm holding up the production of Noah is not lost @DarrenAronofsky @russellcrowe @MattyLibatique
