‘Noah’ begins filming in Iceland before heading to NYC

As we’ve been reporting, crews are hard at work building an ark 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, at the Planting Fields Arboretum in Upper Brookville, New York.

But, it turns out, before shooting is to begin in Upper Brookville, the production is spending a few weeks filming on location in Iceland.

Aronofsky has been treating fans to a sneak peek at the set including a couple of photos you can check out below.

Crowe has also been tweeting a few gems from Iceland like, “Wind tears the volcanic desert,ash and sand arcing in 40 foot waves across the plain,in the distance the sonambulent glacier leaks” and “I’m living on a vast plain of volcanic ash in the lee of a volcanic glacier. The commute to work is a hike up a mountain. Have a great day.”

According to recent casting calls, Noah should be in full swing in NYC by mid-September.
