Ellen Page and Jesse Eisenberg are set to join Alec Baldwin in Woody Allen’s upcoming, as yet unnamed, film venture.
Although very little has been revealed about Allen‘s next directorial venture – apart from the fact that it is set in Rome – several big names are now attached to the film.
First to be enlisted was Penelope Cruz, who previously worked with Allen back in 2008 with Vicky Cristina Barcelona. A few days ago it was announced that another former collaborator was to join the cast list, in the form of Alec Baldwin, who starred in Allen’s 1990 film, Alice.
Now, however, it seems a couple of Allen first-timers have been added to the bill. Jesse Eisenberg, who recently received much critical acclaim for his performance in The Social Network, has been confirmed to star, as has actress Ellen Page, who made her name in the 2007 comedy-drama, Juno.
Meanwhile, Allen has another film soon to be released – Midnight in Paris. This upcoming romantic comedy is scheduled to première at the at the 64th Cannes Film Festival in May (which we’ve already reported on here), and stars Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams and Carla Bruni, amongst others.
We’ll keep you posted!
