More photos from the set of Noah, and a new casting clue

We can’t let more than a few weeks go by here without posting something about Darren Aronosky’s Noah, so here’s a link to some photos from the New York set that were posted at On Location Vacations a couple weeks ago.

In these pictures, you can see, among other things, co-stars Logan Lerman (who plays Noah’s son Ham) and Madison Davenport (who plays Ham’s wife Na’el) dressed in somewhat raggedy clothes and covered in a thin layer of dirt. Even more interestingly, perhaps, you can also see what looks like soldiers carrying spears and dressed in antediluvian armour.

And what, exactly, is a “watcher”? Hitfix columnist Drew McWeeny, who has read the script, says they are “eleven-foot-tall fallen angels with six arms and no wings. They have a major presence in the script, and they’re fascinating. Early on, when Noah needs to go see his grandfather, he has to move through the homeland of the Watchers, something that is not easy to do.”
