Bradley Cooper's movie shut down by hurricane

The actor, who plays a cop-turned-politician in the crime drama, was away from the set when Hurricane Irene struck Schenectady, New York during the shoot in August last year (11).

Cooper immediately drove back to the location and was in awe of the destruction caused by the heavy rains.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Everything was flooded. (The crew) had to go in with rowboats to take film from one place to the next."

The Place Beyond The Pines wasn't the only production affected by Hurricane Irene - TV drama One Tree Hill was shut down as the storm lashed the East Coast of the U.S.
