With Midnight In Paris about to debut opening night at this year's Cannes Film Festival, we have just learned some interesting news from Woody Allen. He has written a role for himself in his next film which is to take place in the wonderful city of Rome. This is going to be Allen's first role since 2006 (Scoop).
Allen has said that his next film is not as much of a romantic comedy, as it is an "out and out comedy". The cast already includes Jesse Eisenberg, Alec Baldwin, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz, Roberto Bengini and Allen himself. With every actor cast in the film, comes an Academy Award nomination. With Jesse Eisenberg looking like the lead role, you cannot help but to see a little Woody in him as well. This could be one of Allen's classics, or it could turn out to be a dud, but we shall see.
