WOODY WEDNESDAY Woody Allen has signed up Kristen Stewart for his new movie.

______

Woody Allen has cast Bruce Willis, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg in his latest movie. As usual with Allen’s projects at this stage, the film is untitled and there are no details, though it’s being produced by Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson.

It’s an eye-striking and typically varied and unusual cast and Allen remains one of the few directors who signs up talent without showing them a script. Everybody wants to work with Allen and the general rule of thumb is: if you’re asked, you take the job. Cate Blanchet won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2014 after starring in Allen’s Blue Jasmine.

Allen’s next movie will be Irrational Man, with Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix. Set on a small town college campus, it tells the story of a philosophy professor in an existential crisis who gives his life new purpose when he enters into a relationship with his student. The movie hits theaters through Sony Pictures Classics on July 24.

The new film appears to be the latest career high for Stewart, who’s turned in a few stellar performances as of late. She gained rave reviews for her performance alongside Juliette Binoche in Cloud of Sils Maria and was similarly impressive alongside Oscar-winner Julianne Moore in Still Alice. She recently joined the cast of an untitled project from Kelly Reichardt co-starring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. The film focuses on the lives of people living in small-town Montana, with Stewart as a lawyer who befriends a student in her class.
