First Look: Woody Allen's Latest Titled 'Magic in the Moonlight,' Reveals Full Cast and PhotosJacob Hall |
Woody Allen has been hit and miss for the past decade or two, but between 'Midnight in Paris' and 'Blue Jasmine,' the legendary filmmaker seems to be hitting a new stride. So we have high hopes for hist latest production. We knew that it would star Emma Stone and Colin Firth, but now we know what it's going to be called. Drumroll, please ...
Allen's next production will be titled 'Magic in the Moonlight.' It's not a particularly attention-grabbing title, but neither is 'Blue Jasmine' and that's one of the best films of 2013 so far. The title announcement (via The Wrap) also includes the first official images from the film, offering a look at the always wonderful Emma Stone and Marcia Gay Harden (shown above) and a glimpse of Colin Firth, looking typically dapper (shown below).
Although the film is currently in post-production, plot details remain scarce. However, these images tell us that it's going to be a period piece set in the south of France and that Stone will wear a pretty cool hat. We also know that Stone, Firth and Harden will be backed up by Eileen Atkins, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney and Jacki Weaver. With Allen's pedigree, that's all we really need to know, anyway.
'Magic in the Moonlight' doesn't have distribution yet, but since this is Woody Allen we're talking about, it's guaranteed to get picked up at one major film festival or another. Expect it to hit theaters sometime in 2014.
