According to France24.com, Woody Allen will begin filming his latest film on July 9. No word when Scarlett will be flying to Spain.
US director Woody Allen will begin filming his new, as yet untitled film, starring Scarlett Johansson, in the Spanish city of Barcelona on July 9, production society Mediapro said Thursday.
Joining Johansson will be English actress Rebecca Hall as well as Spanish stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.
Some scenes will be directed in the northern Spanish region of Asturias, where Allen spent Tuesday in the regional capital Oviedo seeking out sites to film in through to late August.
“The region of Asturias is magnificent. I always wanted to come to Spain to work and now I have the chance,” Spanish news media quoted Allen as saying.
The 71-year-old Academy Award-winning director is widely admired in Spain, and Oviedo itself boasts a lifesize bronze statue of him. Allen first visited the city to accept the Asturias prize for art in 2002.
