Variety has confirmed that Scarlett has signed to star in Midnight In Barcelona, her third collaboration with Woody Allen. This makes her the actress Allen has used most frequently since his early runs with Mia Farrow and Diane Keaton.

Johansson and Rebecca Hall (The Prestige) join Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz in the film, which will shoot for six weeks in Barcelona and one week in Asturias. Allen will trek to Spain in June for pre-production and then will return to begin production after the July 4 holiday.

Spain-based producer Mediapro is financing half of the film, and Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Gareth Wiley are producing.

It is the first film that Allen has shot in Spain, but this will be the fourth consecutive production outside the U.S. for a director once identified as the quintessential New York filmmaker. Allen made his previous three films in London, and he began going there partly to preserve the auteur manner in which he has always made his films.

In a few weeks, Sher will audition opera singers to play de Becque, the South Seas plantation owner who falls in love with Forbush during World War II.

Dimitri Hvorovstovsky, the hunky Russian tenor, is a likely candidate. Physically, the white-haired tenor would pair very well with the blonde Johansson.

“They want the leads to be sexy,” says a production source. “This is not going to be a stodgy old production of South Pacific. “

Those two roles, among the greatest ever written for the American musical, were played by Ezio Pinza and Mary Martin in the original 1949 Broadway production.

I am not able to get this magazine here in the UK so I would really appreciate it if someone could send in scans. Full credit will, of course, be given. Thanks in advance!
