It appears that having gone on his European tour, Woody Allen is planning to head back to the States for his next movie, and he’s already signing up the cast to hep him. Variety reports that Woody wants Sally Hawkins to join the select band of actresses who’ve worked with him more than once, as she was in Cassandra’s Dream and will now star in his new movie.
As always with Woody, the plot details are known only to him, but the film will shoot in San Francisco and his beloved New York this summer, with Sally playing a neurotic woman who’s nevertheless fun to be with (Woody often has character who basically stand in for him if he’s not starring in a film, so is Sally gonna be a female Woody this time around?).
Hawkins may have some starry company, as while neither has signed up as of yet, Cate Blanchett is being considered to play a sophisticated type who has her life sorted out, while Bradley Cooper is circling a role too.
