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.

Allen, who recently won an Oscar for writing “Midnight in Paris,” just wrapped “To Rome With Love,” which Sony Pictures Classics releases June 22.

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.
