Woody Allen Recruits Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis for Next Film
Woody Allen’s latest film, Irrational Man, hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but the prolific director has already begun planning his next project, which isn’t exactly surprising. Allen, who has consistently delivered one film each year, has selected an interesting trio of actors to headline his next, untitled project: Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis. Bruce Willis in a Woody Allen film? What?
According to Deadline, Adventureland co-stars Stewart and Eisenberg will reunite for Allen’s next project, which will also co-star Bruce Willis. Willis has been appearing in a string of not-great action B-movies lately, so appearing in a Woody Allen film could give him a little boost. And while an Allen film may seem a bit of an odd fit for Willis, he delivered a quite wonderful performance in Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. That performance left us with a desire to see him take on similar roles.
As of now, Allen’s next project has no title, plot details or release date, but with Irrational Man hitting theaters this year, we should know more about his new film later in the year.
Irrational Man stars Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who previously appeared in Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight), and centers on college professor in the midst of an existential crisis, whose life begins to improve when he enters into a relationship with one of his students. The film also stars Parker Posey and Jamie Blackey, and hits theaters on July 24.
