Sally Hawkins Up For Woody Allen's Next

Sally Hawkins Up For Woody Allen's Next

We already know that Woody Allen likes working with certain actors more than once (see: Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz as recent examples). Made In Dagenham’s Sally Hawkins is now set to join the ranks of the Woody Repeat Performers Society with word that the writer-director wants her to play one of the leads in his next, untitled film.

As is standard in Woody’s world, most of the details are locked away in his noggin for now, known only to trusted confidantes such as regular producer Letty Aronson. But Variety has learned that the film will see him returning to the States for the first time in years, with shooting scheduled for San Francisco and his old stomping grounds of New York this summer.

Hawkins, who co-starred in Cassandra's Dream, is on to play a neurotic young woman who is nevertheless a lot of fun to be with. Cate Blanchett is being seriously considered to co-star as a sophisticated type who has her life sorted out. And there’s also word that Bradley Cooper is circling a part.

Allen’s latest pic, To Rome With Love, will be out in the US on June 22. There’s no set UK release yet, but it seems to be hitting most of Europe in July or August, so we’d expect it around then. Hawkins will next be seen in Mike Newell’s Great Expectations.
