Even while plot details on Woody Allen’s upcoming summer release “Blue Jasmine” continue to be kept largely under-wraps, the first pieces of information on his next as-yet-untitled film have been released.
Starring first-time collaborators Colin Firth and Emma Stone, the film will once again find Allen returning to Europe to begin filming this summer. The film will be his eighth set in Europe, with Allen’s longtime associates Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum once again producing the film. No information on the plot has been released, except the confirmation that it will be shot and set in the South of France.
Allen will be re-teaming with cinematographer Darius Khondji who shot both of Allen’s last two European-shot films (“Midnight in Paris,” “To Rome With Love”). Production designer Anne Seibel and costume designer Sonia Grande, who both also worked on the films, will be returning to the production as well.
As is typical with Allen, no additional details involving the film’s cast or plot have yet been released. Expect to hear more following Sony Pictures Classics’ July 26 release of “Blue Jasmine.”
