Woody Allen, the classic New Yorker, is taking his next project to Paris — and he's bringing Marion Cotillard with him. The French actress has signed on to star in the director's next film, alongside Owen Wilson. No details have been released about the plot of the untitled script, but rumors are swirling that France's First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy may also join the cast.
Allen's most recent films have hit both highs (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and lows (Whatever Works), so I'm curious to see where this latest venture falls in the mix. Cotillard seems like a nice addition to his list of lady muses, but Wilson? I'm having a hard time picturing him taking on neuroses, if the role requires him to do the Woody Allen shtick. It's definitely interesting casting, but what do you think — does Allen have the makings of a winning ensemble on his hands, or are Owen, Cotillard, and Sarkozy just too random?
