Kristen to star with Jesse Eisenberg & Bruce Willis in the new Woody Allen movie
Deadline Woody Allen has begun casting his 2015 feature film, and he has set Jesse Eisenberg, Bruce Willis and Kristen Stewart to lead the ensemble, I’m told. No comment from the Allen camp. As usual, the film is untitled and there are no plot details, and it’s being produced by Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, his usual collaborators. Allen might be the one director who, when he courts talent, doesn’t really show them a script. Everybody wants to work with him and they consider themselves lucky to be asked and if they’re available, they say yes almost always.
Allen’s next release, Irrational Man, stars Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix and it will be released by Sony Pictures Classics July 24th. Eisenberg and Willis are repped by CAA, Stewart is repped by Gersh.
The Wrap Woody Allen is casting Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis in his next movie, which is expected to shoot this summer, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
The film doesn’t have a title yet, but it will be produced by Allen’s usual collaborators, Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson.
Plot details remain as mysterious as a Manhattan murder, though it will be the third feature starring Eisenberg and Stewart, who previously worked together on “Adventureland” and Nima Nourizadeh’s upcoming “American Ultra.”
Eisenberg, who makes a great stand-in for Allen, previously worked with the director on “To Rome With Love.”
