As is his wont, no plot details have shaken from Woody Allen’s next picture. But, as usual, his “Irrational Man” followup will be produced by Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson. And the full cast list has dropped.
Jeannie Berlin, Corey Stoll and Ken Stott now join previously announced players Parker Posey (who shines as an amorous professor in “Irrational Man”), Jesse Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart and Bruce Willis. Co-stars are Anna Camp, Stephen Kunken, Sari Lennick and Paul Schneider.
Casting Parker Posey again was a no-brainer. She has said she always wanted to work with the prolific director. Character actress Jeannie Berlin (of Elaine May’s “The Heartbreak Kid”) has never been in an Allen picture, surprisingly. Also a storied stage actress, she’s fabulous in Kenneth Lonergan’s film “Margaret.”
The film reportedly begins filming this month on location in New York and Los Angeles.
