Dame Eileen Atkins joins Colin Firth in new Woody Allen film
Wednesday 03 July 2013
Dame Eileen Atkins has joined Colin Firth in the cast of Woody Allen's new film.
The writer and director has already begun filming on his latest project, a comedy which also stars Emma Stone, on location in the South of France.
Veteran British actress Dame Eileen, star of Cold Mountain and Cranford, has joined the cast along with Oscar nominees Marcia Gay Harden and Jacki Weaver, according to Variety.
As with all Woody Allen productions the title and subject matter is being kept under wraps. It is Allen's second time filming in France and his eighth film set in Europe.
Allen's latest movie, Blue Jasmine, is due out later this month. It stars Cate Blanchett as a woman suffering from depression after being conned by her husband, played by Alec Baldwin, who goes to stay with her sister (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco.
