Set construction underway in Upper Brookville, New York for Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’

Preparations are already underway for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, the epic, biblical tale of Noah (as in Noah and the Ark), starring Emma Watson, Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, and Logan Lerman.

There is currently a massive movie set being built for the movie at the Planting Fields Arboretum in Upper Brookville, New York. Though signs posted around the set read “POPI”, we’ve confirmed the construction is for Noah.

Filming is tentatively scheduled to begin on July 23 and, from the sounds of it, much of the filming will likely take place at the Arboretum.

If you have any scoop to share about Noah or any of the other projects currently filming in NYC, let us know about it at!


  1. the set is located at the right side of the back meadow, past the manor house. The crew involved confirmed it was a movie, but said that it was top secret. As of today 7/11/12 the set looks quite huge, with a large opening going through the middle of it. I had my phone but didn’t think to take some shots of it…sorry!
