Volgens Nu Video wordt in de film Body of Lies de Noordermarkt opgeblazen. De Skipintro uitkijkpost houdt de Noordermarkt scherp in de gaten maar heeft niks gezien. Geen opgeblaas en ook geen filmcrew. Klopt, lezen we op Wikipedia. Body of Lies is a 2008 American thriller film… based on the novel of the same name by David Ignatius about a CIA operative who goes to Jordan to track a high-ranking terrorist. The film is directed by Ridley Scott, director of American Gangster and Black Hawk Down, written by William Monahan, and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani and Australian actor Vince Colosimo.
Production took place in Washington D.C., Europe, and the Middle East. Scott sought to film in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, but the federation’s National Media Council denied the director permission due to the script’s politically sensitive nature. As a result, scenes set in Jordan were instead filmed in Morocco. Part of Capitol Hill neighborhood was converted to resemble a wintry Amsterdam to film ten to fifteen seconds of a car bombing.
