Allen is writing, directing and producing the untitled pic, and like all his recent films, plot details are being heavily guarded.
As usual, Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson will produce. The film hasn’t found a distributor yet, although Amazon seems to be a likely destination, given Allen’s recent relationship with the studio.
Though Winslet’s career has spanned more than two decades, the actress has never worked with the auteur prior to this pic.
Winslet is coming off her Oscar-nominated role in “Steve Jobs” and was also recently seen in Open Road’s crime drama “Triple Nine.” She just wrapped production »

Lionsgate executives have set a July 15 limited launch for Woody Allen’s Cannes Film Festival opener.
Café Society will expand on July 22 and go into wide release one week after that.
The studio is the distribution partner on the film with Amazon Studios, which has said it will bring titles to its Prime Video customers four months after theatrical release.
Prior to that, there will be an exclusive 90-day theatrical window, followed by a 30-day transactional window, when viewers will be able to watch the film via iTunes and other VOD platforms and can pay for it on Amazon in a stand-alone transaction.
Jesse Eisenberg stars in Café Society as a young man who arrives in 1930s Hollywood in search of fame and fortune and finds love. Kristen Stewart also stars, alongside Steve Carell, Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Corey Stoll, Ken Stott and Jeannie Berlin.

As the rumors swirl when it comes to the line-up for the 69th Cannes Film Festival, today brings confirmation of one specific title. The festival announced today that Woody Allen‘s latest feature Café Society — which Amazon Studios is expected to release this summer — will open the event as an out-of-competition title, marking the third time one of his films has done so.
Led by Kristen Stewart (who we expect to also show up with Olivier Assayas‘ Personal Shopper) and Jesse Eisenberg, the announcement also comes with an official logline (following last week’s details from cinematographer Vittorio Storaro) and the first still, seen above. Check out the press release below in full and return for our review.

Woody Allen’s “Cafe Society,” starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, has been selected to open the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival. The film will make its world premiere in an out-of-competition slot on May 11, in advance of its release later this year through Amazon Studios, which acquired North American rights to the picture in February.
Allen remains one of the most celebrated American directors in France, and Cannes’ selection no doubt owes to the influence of Stephane Celerier’s Mars Distribution, which has handled the Gallic release of Allen’s recent output, dating the film’s French release for May 11. (Allen’s previous feature, “Irrational Man,” grossed $6.3 million in France — by far the pic’s strongest international box office performance.)
