Woody Allen is ready to go with a new movie.
He will shoot an untitled comedy in Spain this summer starring two time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz and a favorite actress of ours, Gina Gershon. Others in the film include Louis Garrel (The Dreamers), Sergi López (Pan’s Labyrinth), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), and Wallace Shawn (Manhattan) .
The film is going under “WASP 2019” which means Woody Allen Summer Project 2019.
Woody currently has “A Rainy Day in New York” ready to be released in the US. It already has French and Italian release dates. He’s suing Amazon Studios because they haven’t released it, and have tied him up.
Nevertheless, Woody plows on. This isn’t the first movie he’s shot in Spain. That was “Vicki Cristina Barcelona,” which was a huge hit and won Penelope Cruz an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
In this film, Waltz and Gershon play a couple who go to the San Sebastian Film Festival and get caught up in the celebrity and romance. They each have affairs, but it all resolves with laughs, amicably.
