Woody Allen will be back in theaters this summer with To Rome WIth Love, but he’s already gearing up for his next movie. Variety is reporting that Sally Hawkins has signed on to Allen’s next film that is set to shoot in San Francisco and New York. Hawkins will be playing a “neurotic who’s more fun and rough around the edges.” Cate Blanchett and Bradley Cooper are also reportedly in talks to join the film.
After recent trips to Europe, it will be interesting to see what an Allen film set at least partially in San Francisco will look like. Woody Allen won an Academy Award this past year for Midnight in Paris, his 3rd screenwriting Oscar and 4th overall. His next film, To Rome with Love arrives on June 22nd.
