Woody Allen casts French President’s wife in “Paris”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: When, if ever, will Woody Allen slow down?

This is a staggering fact. The prolific director, 71, has turned out a movie a year every year since 1982. He missed 1981 for some reason, having released “Stardust Memories” in 1980. Maybe he lost track of time? And while some of the films released in that span have missed the mark, others — including “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Bullets Over Broadway,” “Match Point” and the recent “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” — have been masterpieces.

Yesterday, we learned Allen’s “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” with Anthony Hopkins and Naomi Watts, would play the Toronto International Film Festival. Today, we receive word that Allen’s already hard at work on his next picture — “Midnight in Paris” — and he has hired Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, for a small role. According to People, she has been shooting scenes with Owen Wilson around the Pantheon in Paris’s 5th arrondissement. A source tells the magazine, “Carla and Woody got along incredibly well on the set. They talked constantly and laughed quite a lot between takes.”

It seems to be Allen’s quest to work with everyone under the sun before his light finally fades. No idea when that will happen, but if we were to guess, we’d say Allen will pass away while working on a film set. Could you imagine a better “Hollywood Ending” for this enduring icon?
