Sally Hawkins in talks for Woody Allen pic

Letty Aronson-produced dramedy is shooting this summer

Brit thesp Sally Hawkins, who co-starred in Woody Allen’s “Cassandra’s Dream,” is in talks to play one of the two female leads in Allen’s next movie, which will shoot in San Francisco and New York this summer.

Allen’s longtime producer Letty Aronson is producing the pic, which is expected to be a dramedy.

Allen is eyeing Cate Blanchett for the other lead, a sophisticated woman who has her life together, as Hawkins will be playing a neurotic who’s more fun and rough around the edges. Bradley Cooper is also circling a role in the ensemble.

Hawkins recently starred in Mike Leigh’s “Happy-Go-Lucky” and Nigel Cole’s “Made in Dagenham.” Thesp also appeared in “Never Let Me Go,” “Submarine” and “Jane Eyre,” and she most recently wrapped Mike Newell’s “Great Expectations.”

Hawkins is repped by ICM, Conway van Gelder and Principal Entertainment.
