russell-crowe-noah filming heldIronically enough the shooting of Darren Aronofsky's new film, Noah starring Emma Watson has been put on hold due to the somewhat Biblical in itself storms raging from Sandy.

There are concerns that the ark built especially for the film, which is 450 feet long, 75 feet tall and 45 feet wide might be destroyed by the resulting storms. The ship is moored at Oyster Bay but would not fair well at all if it was washed out to see by the huge waves that are being blown up by the hurricane.

Emma Watson also thought it was pretty ironic Tweeting :

'I take it that the irony of a massive storm holding up the production of Noah is not lost @DarrenAronofsky@russellcrowe @MattyLibatique.'
