Screen Daily reports that Woody Allen wants to cast Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall (The Prestige co-star) opposite Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem in his new and currently untitled film to be shot in Barcelona, Spain this summer.

Allen described the story as “romantic but serious.” A script has been completed and Allen is currently auditioning English-speaking actors. Prized Spanish cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe has been tapped for the film as part of a reportedly all-Spanish crew. The film will also shoot in Oviedo, a city in Spain’s northern Asturias region.

Scarlett previously starred in Woody Allen’s Scoop and Match Point.
