Woody Allen spending Midnight in Paris

Woody Allen is being a little more forthcoming than usual.

According to Variety, the director has announced some of the details about his next film, Midnight in Paris, including an all-star cast. The movie will star Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Kathy Bates, and Carla Bruni, while it appears that Michael Sheen, Tom Hiddleston, Mimi Kennedy, Kurt Fuller, and Nina Arianda will play supporting roles. Most interesting there is the involvement of Carla Bruni, French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s wife.

The movie is a romantic comedy following a family to Paris on business, a story about a young engaged couple who have their lives changed by the trip, and the story of a young man’s great love for the city itself which “simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.” Ambitious.

The film is being produced by Steve Tennenbaum, Jaume Roures, and Letty Aronson, part of the production team behind Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Allen’s upcoming You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.
