Thursday 14 April 2011
Woody Allen is about to screen his new film,
Midnight in Paris, at Cannes in May, prior to releasing it to theaters, and has already cast the principal players in his next film, as yet untitled.
Ellen Page ( Inception), Jesse Eisenberg ( The Social Network) and Alec Baldwin ( It's Complicated) join Penelope Cruz ( Broken Embraces) for Allen's 42nd film project scheduled to begin production in Rome this summer, according to Variety.
The director and screenwriter worked with Cruz on 2008's Vicky Cristina Barcelona, for which she won the Oscar, and with Baldwin on the 1990s film Alice with Mia Farrow.
Midnight in Paris stars Owen Wilson ( Marley & Me), Michael Sheen ( Tron: Legacy) and Rachel McAdams ( Sherlock Holmes). It opens in the US on May 20.
Page stars in the indie comedy Super with Rainn Wilson ( The Office), while Eisenberg is the voice of Blu in the animated Rio. Baldwin stars in comedy-drama Hick with Chloe Moretz ( Kick-Ass) and Blake Lively ( The Town). Penelope Cruz will costar with Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
