Noah’s Ark Delayed Due to Flooding

So yeah. Noah’s Ark can’t actually float apparently. Cut and paste jb from IMDb

 

Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) has been filming his Noah film, based on the Biblical tale of Noah’s Ark, at Oyster Bay, NY. To make it as realistic as possible, the director built a massive ark, which measures 450 feet long, 75 feet tall and 45 feet wide. Unfortunately, it was never meant to be sailed. With production wrapping up within the next few weeks, the ark was forced to deal with flooding as Hurricane Sandy passed through Oyster Bay. Emma Watson, one of the actresses on the film, pointed out the irony of flooding being the cause of problems for the production. It’s not clear how much damage was done to the set, but there’s a good chance that some repairs will have to be made. During the delay, Aronofsky wrote that he took the time to catch up on some movies, seeing Cloud Atlas and The Master.

That is all for today’s “Onion-esque” news.
