Firth Locked For Woody Allen's Latest
Emma Stone also officially aboard

They’ve been likely candidates for a couple of days, but now Emma Stone and Colin Firth are officially confirmed as the first two pieces of casting for Woody Allen’s latest, still-to-be-titled film.

As of right now it’s still lumbering along under the familiar stand-in name of Untitled Woody Allen Summer Project, but this will see the Woodster taking a group of actors to the South of France for a new comedy script he’s cranked out. We imagine that the combination of Allen and such a tasty location should lure quite an impressive cast.

While most of the cast is yet to be announced, behind the camera Allen will lean on a roster of regular collaborators including cinematographer Darius Khondji, production designer Anne Seibel and costume designer Sonia Grande.

Trivia fans will be pleased with the knowledge that this is Allen's second time shooting in France after 2011’s Midnight In Paris (he also had some french scenes, of course, in Everyone Says I Love You), and his eighth primarily European outing. Looks like someone has dragged their sticker-laden steamer trunk out of storage and dusted off the Eurorail pass.

Allen’s latest, the San Francisco-set Blue Jasmine, will arrive in the US on July 26 and is out over here on September 20.
