Woody Allen reveals details of upcoming pic

Director goes public with 'Midnight in Paris,' cast members

Woody Allen has gone public with details about his upcoming film, titled “Midnight in Paris” and shooting this summer in the City of Lights.

The usually reclusive filmmaker disclosed Thursday that the pic stars Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates and Carla Bruni. Also in the cast are Michael Sheen, Nina Arianda, Tom Hiddleston, Corey Stoll, Mimi Kennedy and Kurt Fuller.

Deals for Wilson, Cotillard and McAdams had been disclosed in late March while the participation of Bruni — wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy — had been rumored for months, but the remainder of the cast had stayed under the radar.

“Midnight in Paris” is a romantic comedy that follows a family traveling to the city for business, including a young engaged couple who have their lives transformed throughout the journey. “The film celebrates a young man’s great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better,” the announcement said.

Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaume Roures are producing “Paris,” part of a three-picture financing deal between Allen’s Gravier Prods. and Mediapro.Spain-based Mediapro also funded Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and his upcoming “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” set to be released domestically by Sony Pictures Classics this fall. “Stranger” will screen out of competition at Cannes next month.

International sales for “Paris” for most markets are being handled by Imagina Intl. Sales.
