UPDATE: Here is a bit more information on Woody Allen’s next film. I’m told he will shoot in the South of France. That country certainly worked out for him in Midnight In Paris.
EXCLUSIVE: Woody Allen has begun to cast up his next film, and it looks like Emma Stone will play his leading lady. Stone is in talks on the film. These stories are the easiest to write, since Allen keeps his plots, titles, and everything else under his hat. About all you can say is who will be in it, and I expect Stone to close a deal soon. Allen most recently completed Blue Jasmine, with Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin and Louis C.K. leading the cast. Stone has a lot going on, including the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu-directed dark comedy Birdman, the untitled film that Cameron Crowe will direct, and she will reprise as Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

BREAKING: Alejandro González Iñárritu, the Mexican director whose films are about as serious and sad as anything I’ve seen from a world-class filmmaker, is about to lighten the tone and make us laugh with his next feature. Gonzalez Inarritu will next direct Birdman, a comedy he co-wrote with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, and Armando Bo.
Gonzalez Inarritu followed the tragedy-filled Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Babel by making possibly the most heartbreaking film I’ve ever seen in Biutiful, his last film. Here, he’ll tell the story of an actor in crisis, who once played an iconic superhero, as he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself in the days leading up to the opening of a Broadway play. Birdman will be captured in a single location over the span of three days. Production is currently slated to begin in March 2013. Iñárritu will produce with Robert Graf and his former agent-turned-producer John Lesher. CAA reps Iñárritu and will rep the film. Read More »
