There has not been any new pictures from the set of Woody Allen Spanish Project this week as they have been filming indoors. I did, however, manage to upload a couple of more of Scarlett and Woody on day five.
Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 07/08 campaign ads are slowly starting to appear in magazines so please let us know if you spot any. I’ve added two new ones in the gallery, as well as a Russian Color Riche ad. Thanks so much to our awesome forum members for all of the great finds!
Variety reports that The Weinstein Co. has moved up the release of The Nanny Diaries to August 24 from September 7, 2007. This is the third time the film has changed dates, but “There is nothing rotten in the state of Denmark,” Harvey Weinstein said. “We really believe in the movie and people like it.”
The company thinks it’s a good move, pointing to data that shows total grosses for the week before Labor Day running 31% higher than those during the week after Labor Day. “It’s clearly better playtime,” said The Weinstein Co. distrib chief Steve Bunnell. “If we had a movie in June or July and moved it back to August, then that could be a dumping ground, but this isn’t that situation at all.”
The Nanny Diaries will screen August 31 in a gala at the Venice Film Festival. Early indications are that the movie may not be best-picture bait but could have potential for various comedy honors such as the Golden Globes’ musical/comedy nod.
Penelope Cruz was asked about Scarlett Johansson at a Monday press conference in Ibiza, Spain, where she and her younger sister, Monica, launched their Mango clothing collection. “We have a lot of scenes together,” Cruz told People. “Scarlett’s very sweet. I’ve met her a few times just around. I’m so excited for this film. I’ve been going around saying my lines everywhere.”
|I’ve updated the gallery with five pictures of Scarlett filming on July 13, 2007. They were shooting in Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona.|

Love and intrigue lie at the heart of the new Woody Allen film which the veteran US director has begun shooting with a star-studded cast, Catalan newspaper El Periodico reported Saturday.
According to the paper, the plot, which Allen, 71, has kept carefully under wraps to date, involves a tryst between a painter, his ex-fiancÃ©e and two American tourists.
Allen has said only that the new flick will be a “love letter to Barcelona,” adding that filming in Spain — aside from Barcelona some scenes will also be shot in the northern region of Asturias — will be “a dream come true.”
El Periodico says it has learned the movie will be a “romantic and touristic comedy” based on the two US women who come to Barcelona to learn Catalan culinary secrets as well as on a seductive artist and his jealous ex, played by Spanish star Penelope Cruz.
According to the journal, Spanish actor Javier Bardem will play the artist and US starlets Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall have been cast in the roles of the tourists.
“The first thing she did was go downtown to a restaurant and she got recognized,” said Wish Nails. “It was a real drag because people were saying stuff to her like, ‘I don’t believe it’s you. Take off your glasses.’
“That was the last time she went out to eat. But the rest of the trips were to Wal-Mart and Albertsons. When I tell you she went to Wal-Mart and Albertsons, she went a lot.”
Wal-Mart, margaritas and music was the life for Johansson, who spent 33 days in Maurice recording here debut CD at Dockside Studio. Owned by Steve and Wish Nails, Dockside is a 12-acre recording complex hidden along the Vermilion River.
The filming took place outside the Santa Maria Del Mar Church in Barcelona yesterday. Scarlett Johansson and Woody Allen were joined on the set by the brilliant actress Patricia Clarkson. As usual, I’ve added plenty of HQ pictures from the occasion.

Scarlett, Woody & co spent yesterday filming scenes at the Barcelona harbor. It seems that Scarlett was in a great mood, smiling and waving at the paparazzi from the boat. I also updated the other on the set albums with many more pics and added DoubleT’s video from day one to the video archive.
For those who have been asking me about the future filming locations – I am sorry but I do not know. However, I have posted this thread at the forum so I recommend you keep your eyes peeled on that one if you’re in the area. I am sure that if any of the local forum members know any details, they will post it there.
Also, another reminder that I still do not have internet at home because of my recent move so I only update at the library when ever there is something new. That is why I have not added any of your contributions yet. I promise I’ll add them as soon as I get my internet back.
– Woody Allen Spanish Project (2008)
The filming of the Woody Allen Spanish Project is taking place in Barcelona as we speak and I’ve added today’s first pics in the gallery. They filmed this morning at Boulevard of Barcelona. Scarlett is looking really stunning again, taking pictures and having a laugh with the crew. I really love her hair there!
