Already very close to landing Owen Wilson for what one would have to assume would be the lead male role in his next movie to shoot in France, Woody Allen is also now apparently about to snare an incredibly beautiful leading lady to join him.
Deadline first reported that Marion Cotillard is about to sign on for this, meaning she would join French First Lady Carla Bruni in the as-yet-untitled flick. Details are scant so far as to what it just might be about – so far all I’ve seen is that it will be a “romantic drama” and shoot this summer. Allen can certainly be hit or miss of late, but Vicky Cristina Barcelona stands in my book as one of his best, so he surely has a few good movies left in him, and with this cast, I’m betting this will eventually be one of them..
Hit the jump to find out what Allen has cooking in London with a whole lot of stars in the meantime.
Woody Allen’s next movie, rumored to be on the short list to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this year, is called You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, and he has snagged a slew of big stars to appear in the London-set production. Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts, Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto, Gemma Jones, Bollywood star Anupam Kher and Lucy Punch all have roles in it.
So, what’s it about? Well, all I know for sure is that’s about the tangled personal lives of one big family, but with a cast like that, you can be sure I’ll be watching to find out what comes out of both of these projects.
