As is standard for Woody Allen’s work rate, his latest film (To Rome With Love) is still in theatres, yet he’s already hard at work on his next work. Very little has been revealed about the currently untitled 2013 film, but a recent casting notice tells us that principal production is almost upon us.
We do know that filming will take place in San Francisco and New York. A recently released casting call confirms the San Francisco location, and that extras are needed for 6th August 2012 – less than two weeks away.

We also know the cast – Alec Baldwin, Tammy Blanchard, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis CK, Andrew Dice Clay, Michael Emerson, Sally Hawkins and Peter Sarsgaard. What we don’t know – if Woody himself will appear, or anything related to plot or genre. Alec Baldwin claimed he would be playing a bigger role than he did in To Rome With Love. Louis CK auditioned for two roles. With so many comedic talents, we assume that comedy will play a part.
Allen has a long history with San Francisco, most notably filming Take The Money And Run and Play It Again, Sam there. The San Francisco Chronicle just wrote an excellent piece about Allen’s relationship with San Fran, and the making of those films.
We will, of course, keep you up to date with any developments on this exciting new film!
