Legendary Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro Reportedly Lensing Woody Allen’s 2016 Film, Will Be Set In 1930s

Legendary Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro Reportedly Lensing Woody Allen’s 2016 Film, Will Be Set In 1930s

Woody Allen has worked with some terrific cinematographers in his time — Gordon Willis, Darius Khondji, Sven Nyquist, and Vilmos Zsigmond, among others — and for his 2016 movie, which begins shooting very soon, he’s knocking another great craftsman off his bucket list.

Vittorio Storaro will reportedly lens the upcoming picture, which is pretty exciting stuff. The cinematographer is a three time Academy Award-winner for “Apocalypse Now,” “Reds,” and “The Last Emperor,” and counts Bernardo Bertolucci, Francis Ford Coppola, and Warren Beatty among the filmmakers he’s worked with.

The collaboration should be an interesting one as Woody Allen Pages reports that the film, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Bruce Willis, Corey Stoll, Ken Stott, Anna Camp, Stephen Kunken, Sari Lennick, Paul Schneider, and Jeannie Berlin, is set in the 1930s, though it’s not clear yet if it’s a comedy or drama.

Hopefully some more details arrive as cameras start roll soon, but don’t count on too much, as Allen and company usually keep things under lock and key for as long as possible.
