Woody Allen Is Already Working on a New Film
Say what you will about Woody Allen (and you'd likely be right, either way), but he's one of the most prolific directors of this generation. Literally, days after I attended a press screening for his soon-to-be-released new comedy, Café Society (for which I'll share a review next week), he's just announced the cast of his next untitled film.
According to the scantily detailed press release, which also doesn't include plot details, issued Thursday, here's who've signed on so far:
James Belushi (“The Whole Truth,” “Twin Peaks”), Juno Temple (“Black Mass,” “Vinyl”), Justin Timberlake (“The Social Network,” “Inside Llewyn Davis”), and Kate Winslet (“Steve Jobs,” “The Reader”)
Allen has always had an affinity toward a diverse cast (in gender and age, however NOT race), and this looks to be no exception. This is definitely an interesting group of actors to put together....
AND, Allen is in post-production on his first-ever television show -- an as yet untitled 6-episode series he wrote and directed for Amazon Prime Video starring himself, Miley Cyrus, and Elaine May. It will premiere later this year.
