As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the Northeast, a somewhat odd twist has occurred regarding an upcoming film.  As we've previously reported, Darren Aronofsky's Noah, based on the biblical story, is filming in Oyster Bay, New York.  It's not a bad location, and one that makes sense since hurricanes almost never hit the Northeast, and certainly not at this time of year.  Aronofsky built his ark to the measurements outlined in the bible in terms of the height and width, but the L.A. Times is reporting that the ark has been partially dismantled as a precautionary measure.  The ark, which is outdoors, is "450 feet long and 75 feet tall and 45 feet wide, was not intended to be seaworthy," and let's be fair: authenticity should only have to go so far.  The Times continues that if the storm hits the set, flood repairs may have to be organized.
