The movie is Crowe's fourth collaboration with director Ridley Scott. They teamed up for the Oscar-winning "Gladiator," 2006's "A Good Year" and "American Gangster," costarring Denzel Washington, which is scheduled for release this fall.
On Friday, Crowe was in Annapolis, shooting two scenes at St. Andrew's United Methodist Day School, and the head of the school, Leslie A. Redwine, said she met Crowe and shook his hand.
"He was courtly, cordial and charming," she told The (Baltimore) Sun.
Scott is using locations in Baltimore to stand in for Manchester, England, and Munich, Germany. The production will later move to Morocco.
"Body of Lies," based on a novel by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio, who has not yet arrived in the area.
