W.O. Grubb Crane Rental in the US is involved in movie making in a big way, supplying several cranes for a Universal Pictures movie being shot in Virginia. Building a replica Noah's Ark for the film Evan Almighty, several cranes and operators have been getting star status on the set. A 60 ton capacity Terex RT160 rough terrain has been working on site since late February, while a 65 ton capacity Link-Belt RTC-8065 rough terrain started working in early April. Grubb has also supplied a 100 ton Grove TM9100 truck crane and a 40 ton Link-Belt HTC8640 truck crane for intermittent work on the movie set. In late May, the studio shot a scene in which a Demag AC 535 all terrain is the main focus. Before the movie is a wrap, Grubb is set to supply five 70 ton capacity cranes. A sequel to Bruce Almighty, the film is due for release in June 2007. Directed by Tom Shadyac, the film stars Steve Carell and features Morgan Freeman as God.
