Variety has confirmed that Scarlett has signed to star in Woody Allen Spanish Project, 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.
