The Gravier Prods. film is produced by Allen’s longtime associates Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum. A distributor has not been set.

The story line has been kept under wraps but official set photos of Firth, Stone and Gay Harden show the actors in 1930s garb at a mansion.

“Magic in the Moonlight” is the 47th film directed by Allen. He’s been nominated for 23 Oscars and won for directing and writing “Annie Hall” and for writing “Midnight in Paris” and “Hannah and Her sisters.”

Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” was released July 26 by Sony Pictures Classics — the sixth Allen film that Sony Classics has handled — with a cast including Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew “Dice” Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg. That film was set in San Francisco.

“Blue Jasmine” has grossed $31 million domestically and was still playing in 190 theaters last weekend. It’s taken in another $18 million internationally.

“Magic in the Moonlight” will be the second film Allen has shot in France in the past three years following “Midnight in Paris,” which turned out to be his top grosser with over $150 million worldwide.
