We’ve had a few drip feed pieces of information about Woody Allen’s latest film, Rome-set The Bop Decameron. But now the writer/director has come out and made the formal casting announcement,including the fact that he will be featured in the movie.

This first proper casting list, picked up by Variety, features a few new names among those already linked to the film, with Greta Gerwig and Alison Pill among the newcomers.

So the list in full, then: Woody Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, with co-stars Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio and Alessandro Tiberi.

Given that this is the Woodster we’re talking about, the plot is still largely under wraps, though what little has been reported features four vignettes. Two of them revolve around American characters, with a couple (including Allen as the husband) travelling to Italy to meet the family of their daughter’s fiancé.

Shooting is set to kick off next month in Rome, but there’s no distributor or release date set yet.
