The Irish actor was scheduled to begin work on Winter's Tale in New York on Monday, but movie bosses have now pushed the production's start date back by a day.
The move followed reports which suggest Tropical Storm Sandy - which was downgraded from hurricane status on Saturday - is due to hit the area on Monday after high winds and rain killed more than 40 people in the Caribbean.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros., the studio behind Winter's Tale, confirmed the move to Deadline.com, revealing the decision was taken "as a precaution."
The film also stars Downton Abbey actress Jessica Brown Findlay.
