The cast of the Untitled Woody Allen Project is coming together quickly, with Ellen Page and Penélope Cruz locked in for roles in the drama.
Ellen Page joins the cast of the Untitled Woody Allen Project
We reported two days ago that Alec Baldwin secured a role in the project, with Jesse Eisenberg in talks for a lead role. Jesse Eisenberg's deal has now been finalized, although it still isn't clear what kind of character he is playing. No character details were given for Ellen Page or Penélope Cruz's characters either.
Woody Allen will direct from his own screenplay, with Letty Aronson and Helen Robin. All that is known about the story is that it will be set in Rome.
Like Jesse Eisenberg, the Untitled Woody Allen Project will be Ellen Page's first movie with the legendary filmmaker. Penélope Cruz previously worked with Woody Allen in the 2008 comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona, where she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
To Rome with Love was released June 22nd, 2012 and stars Pierluigi Marchionne, Flavio Parenti, Roberto Benigni, Alison Pill, Alessandro Tiberi, Judy Davis, Alessandra Mastronardi, Alec Baldwin. The film is directed by Woody Allen.
