HURRICANE SANDY: MOVIE AND TV COMPANIES ASSESS DAMAGE

November 1, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Movie and TV companies in New York are assessing the damage wreaked by Hurricane Sandy on Monday and Tuesday. The Hollywood Reporter reported that one of two ships constructed for the filming of Darren Aronofsky’s Noah may have been severely damaged by the storm at its Oyster Bay location. (The other, constructed at a soundstage in Brooklyn, was presumably safe.) It said that roads to Oyster Bay have been blocked by debris making it impossible for crews to assess the damage to the set. Meanwhile, a screening of Skyfall, the latest James Bond thriller, that was to have benefited the Tribeca Film Institute, has been moved from tonight (Thursday) to Nov. 5 because of what the institute called, “operational and logistical challenges.” On the other hand, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and The Colbert Report returned to the air Wednesday night, and David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel returned with their audiences.
