Where was Deep Water filmed? The House & the City Location

Posted by

Set in the small fictional Louisiana town of Little Wesley, Deep Water was entirely filmed in New Orleans and surroundings, the same city where the erotic thriller is set.

This is the first movie directed by Adrian Lyne in 20 years since Unfaithful (2002), the creative mind behind great 80s and 90s hits such as 9½ Weeks, Fatal Attraction, and Indecent Proposal.

Where was Deep Water filmed

Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck, who dated for a while after the shoot, star in the film as a dysfunctional married couple, Vic and Melina.

Their relationship is held together only by their cute daughter and a precarious arrangement where, in order to avoid divorce, Melinda gets to sleep with other men.

Welcome to our almost spoiler-free guide to the filming locations of Deep Water.

The Deep Water house

Deep Water house
The exterior of the Van Allen family's home is the Urbania House at 1365 Constance Street in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans.

Built around the 1830s or 1840s, this four-bedroom and two-bathroom private residence has been used several times as a filming location for various productions including 12 Years a Slave, Hell Baby (both from 2013), and 2011's A Little Bit of Heaven.

However, this property doesn't have a swimming pool, so some of the scenes were filmed somewhere else.

Where were the gorge scenes shot? Doesn't look like Louisiana.

I read elsewhere that the water scenes (the gorge) were filmed at Lake Windermere in the UK, although the wooded scenes could easily have been in The Big Woods in Northern Louisiana (I got lost there many years ago).

There's no gorge in Windermere, UK.

The Gorge reminds me of the Tunica Hills area north of St. Francisville. An area with trails in the woods along streams.
