It’s always kind of tough doing a preview of any
sort for a Woody Allen film because he tends to keep plot details and such
close to the vest. He starts with a central concept and an idea of the pic’s
tone, and you generally don’t get much more until it’s done.
Today’s story is no different. He’s shooting a film
cast Javier Bardem (Collateral, Before Night Falls)
opposite Penelope Cruz. The untitled picture is supposedly about foreigners in
the city dealing with a “love entanglement,” and there will be both English and
Spanish dialogue. Beyond that, little else is known.
Still the cast and concept have my interest piqued.
I loved the hell out of Match Point, and really thought it was
the sharpest thing he’s done in a bit. I haven’t caught Scoop,
but I’m really looking forward to his current project, the upcoming drama Cassandra’s
Dream, which features Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell as brothers.
