Blue Jasmine wasn’t even released in Switzerland yet and already we get a peak at Woody Allen‘s next project. It’s called Magic in the Moonlight and it’s basically a romantic comedy set in 1920s and 1930s France. The film stars Emma Stone and Colin Firth in the lead roles. Hamish Linklater, Marcia Gay Harden and Jacki Weaver will co-star. It doesn’t look like Woody Allen himself will star in the film, which lately seems to be a good thing.
The film was shot by one of my favorite cinematographers, Darius Khondji, who has previously worked with Allen on Midnight in Paris and To Rome with Love, both of which look amazing. Woody shot the period piece on location in southern France. At this point there aren’t any official plot details yet. All we know is that the story spans over two decades and that the film is set to be released on July 26, 2014 apparently, which seems weird because that’s a Saturday.
