The prolific Woody Allen seems to never stop working. Over the last few years he's globe-trotted from location-specific shoots in London, Barcelona and Paris, but will now venture to Rome for his latest, an untitled offering that he'll direct from his own screenplay (as usual). Variety has just gotten the scoop on who'll be performing for the seasoned filmmaker, and the cast includes some Allen vets and some newcomers.
Alec Baldwin, who appeared in Allen's 1990 film Alice, has been cast alongside Penelope Cruz (who won an Oscar in 2008 for her work on the director's Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Jesse Eisenberg and Ellen Page. It's an eclectic cast, and though there are no plot details available, I think we can assume that Baldwin's character might make some moves on Cruz' while Eisenberg and Page will undoubtedly cozy up to one another.
If you can't wait for this helping of Woody Allen, sucks to be you, but you will be able to see his 2011 film Midnight In Paris, starring Marion Cotillard, Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams and more, when it has its limited release on May 20th.
