Jackman in Woody’s pic

Woody Allen has set himself and Hugh Jackman to join Scarlett Johansson and “Deadwood” star Ian McShane in the untitled comedy Allen wrote and will direct. The film, which begins shooting June 27, will be Allen’s second straight London-lensed comedy after “Match Point,” which also stars Johansson. “The film is a comedy melodrama that is contemporary and takes place in London,” said the director. “Johansson plays a visiting American student who has a love affair with a British aristocrat. I play a low-grade American entertainer, which is perfect for me because that’s what I am.”
