Deadline reports that Oscar-winning actor Colin Firth is joining Emma Stone in Woody Allen’s next film. Following typical Woody Allen tradition, the currently untitled film is set to shoot sometime this year for a release next summer.
The plot and title of the film are currently under wraps but it has been reported that Woody Allen is planning on returning to Europe, more specifically the south of France. This film will be the director’s eighth film produced and shot in Europe. Before he travels back to France, the Oscar-winning writer and director makes a return to the United States for his upcoming film Blue Jasmine. The film features a strong cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins, Louis C.K., Peter Sarsgaard, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Blue Jasmine will be released in theaters on July 26th.
I’m sure the already impressive cast will become more even more impressive in the coming weeks. Check back for more updates as they come our way.
