Woody Allen is 83 years old and dealing with legal battles to get his last film released, and navigating a did he or didn’t he controversy involving some very serious allegations. But he continues to make movies and today announced the cast for his next film, currently untitled.
Gina Gershon, Wally Shawn, Christoph Waltz, Elena Anya, Louis Garrel and Sergi Lopez will star in Woody’s 51st film, labeled as WASP2019. Filming will take place in San Sebastian, Spain in July and August.
The film tells the story of a married American couple who go to the San Sebastian Film Festival. They get caught up in the magic of the festival, the beauty and charm of Spain and the fantasy of movies. She has an affair with a brilliant French movie director, and he falls in love with a beautiful Spanish woman who lives there. It is a comedy-romance that resolves itself in a funny but romantic way.
“At MEDIAPRO we’ve been working with Woody Allen for 14 years. His films, like every project the group produces, have a unique personality. This latest movie has all the ingredients to be right up there along with what we’ve become accustomed to from a director of Woody Allen’s talent: an intelligent script and a first-rate international cast. In addition, we’re delighted to be able to shoot the movie in a city such as San Sebastian, which has such strong ties to cinema”, commented Jaume Roures, founding partner of MEDIAPRO.
THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO, the latest brand from the MEDIAPRO Group and whose objective is unique content creation worldwide, co-produce the Woody Allen movie.
This is the 4th collaboration between the Group and the prestigious director and screenwriter after MEDIAPRO produced Midnight In Paris, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, films which won two Oscar® awards, among other prizes and international recognition.
This will also be the 4th collaboration between Woody and renowned award-winning cinematographer Vittorio Storaro.
