Woody Allen to Open Tribeca Film Festival

For the better part of three decades, Woody Allen had - and earned - a reputation for being a New York director. That's not just because he's a New Yorker, but he shot just about all of his films there. Of course, Manhattan might be the quintessential New York movie, so we shouldn't criticize too much.

But he got out of town a few years ago, and produced some of his freshest films in years, if not some of his best ever. But his new comedy, Whatever Works, finds Allen back at home in New York, and now that film will open the Tribeca Film Festival next month. Larry David and Evan Rachel Wood star in the film, which will debut on April 22nd.

In a press release announcing the deal, Allen called the scenario, "a lovely idea of showing my film in a film festival in my own city. It's very exciting." Allen's last film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, is the director's biggest hit since Hannah and her Sisters 22 years earlier.

i will never pay to watch that movie, no matter how good. I like Evan Rachel Wood, but every time I look at a photo of Woody, i see a creepy old guy that married his step-daughter.
