BREAKING: Deadline broke separate stories about Emma Stone and Colin Firth being set for Woody Allen’s next pic. Now, the Woodman has confirmed the news, along with our revelation the film will be set in the South of France. If that part of France stirs Allen as much as did Paris in Midnight In Paris, we should be in for a treat. Here’s the official news:

Woody Allen’s new, untitled comedy will star Colin Firth and Emma Stone. The Gravier Productions film is produced by Allen’s longtime associates, Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum.

Set in the South of France, Allen will shoot the film this summer, once again collaborating with cinematographer Darius Khondji (MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, TO ROME WITH LOVE), production designer Anne Seibel (MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, TO ROME WITH LOVE) and costume designer Sonia Grande (MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, TO ROME WITH LOVE and VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA).

This latest film marks Allen’s second time filming in France and his eighth set in Europe. His previous European films are: TO ROME WITH LOVE (Rome), MIDNIGHT IN PARIS (Paris), YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER (London), VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA (Barcelona), CASSANDRA’S DREAM (London), SCOOP (London) and MATCH POINT (London).

Allen’s upcoming film, BLUE JASMINE, will be released on July 26 by Sony Pictures Classics.
