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 »

After earning a second Oscar nomination for her tortured performance in “The Impossible,” and having recently finished production on her portrayal of Princess Diana (“Diana”), Naomi Watts could certainly use a change of pace from such heavy-handed material. In fact, looking at her filmography from the past few years, you’ll be hard-pressed to find many comedies in the bunch. There’s Woody Allen’s “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” and of course her riotous turn in David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees." Now she's adding another laffer to the bunch. And we don't see how anyone could pass up the opportunity to star alongside Bill Murray, Chris O’Dowd and Melissa McCarthy... The project is “St. Vincent de Van Nuys,” a Black List dramedy from Ted Melfi, which is about a 12-year-old boy who moves in next door to a misanthropic aging retiree (Bill Murray) whose life mainly consists of gambling, »

While Jeremy Irvine, Lucas Till and Alex Pettyfer were testing for the coveted (?) male lead in "Divergent," and certainly have more name recognition than the eventual winner, it seems their talents didn't quite match what the filmmakers were looking for. Instead, rising Brit actor Theo James has gotten the gig, in what he likely hopes will be push into the stateside scene. The actor has had bit parts on Woody Allen's "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger" and "Downton Abbey," appeared in the smash hit "The Inbetweeners Movie" and "Underworld: Awakening" but most vitally, he's got a regular role on the CBS series "Golden Boy." Anyway, he'll be playing Four, in the futuristic story where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group, and when she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, »

There are stranger things in the world than Woody Allen keeping the plot to one of his films under lock and key, but there are few less sensible. It doesn't seem likely that there are hordes of people out there theorizing all the story points of one of Allen's generally wordy features. Sometimes the biggest surprise his films have to offer, such as with Scoop or You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, is how non-essential the critics and fans consider them. Thanks to Collider, the first image from Allen's next film Blue Jasmine has arrived, and while it.s a colorful image and all, it offers little to clue anyone in on the story, which has been described in a press release as .the story of the final stages of an acute crisis and a life of a fashionable New York housewife.. Take a look at the crisis-free image »
Sony Classics is putting together their release schedule for the first half of the year and have announced a pair of dates for two highly anticipated features. First is a May 24 release in New York and Los Angeles for my most anticipated film of the year, Richard Linklater's Before Midnight reuniting the writer/director with his co-writers and stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy for the third film in the Before franchise. Delpy and Hawke return as Celine and Jesse, nine years after their last rendezvous in Before Sunset. Almost two decades have passed since their first encounter on a train bound for Vienna, and we now find them in their early forties in Greece. Before the clock strikes midnight, we will again become part of their story. The film received high marks out of Sundance and I can't wait to see where they go from here. Next is »
