The upcoming film of Noah might be about a strapping, bearded Russell Crowe building a big ark to save the world from apocalypse, but unfortunately it is a fictional film. And Russell Crowe couldn't ever quite build a boat for every single person affected by Hurricane Sandy to avoid the floods in.
Instead, as well as much of Manhattan and other flood-prone areas grinding to a halt, production of the upcoming blockbuster had to take a few days off - leaving the likes of Russell, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone and Heat favourite Douglas Booth, who are all starring in the film, twiddling their thumbs…on Twitter, that is.
Emma tweeted: "I take it that the irony of a massive storm holding up the production of Noah is not lost @DarrenAronofsky@russellcrowe @MattyLibatique"
(Those people she also tweeted were Darren Aronofsky, the director of Noah - he previously directed Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman in Black Swan - and Matthew Libatique, a cinematographer working on the film)
Emma also followed up the tweet with a well-wish to the millions of people near the storm, which whipped up winds of up to 96mph: "To everyone affected by #sandy my thoughts are with you. Hope everyone is ok. Xx"
And we hope so, too!
