Lea Seydoux joins Woody Allen’s ‘Paris,’ Carla Bruni still onboard

HollywoodNews.com: There was a rumor that Carla Bruni, the first lady of France, was replaced in Woody Allen’s film “Midnight in Paris” – however that’s just scuttle bucket.

News had arrived from a Parisian website Bakchich.info that Bruni, 42, was replaced by French actress Lea Seydoux (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Robin Hood”), who is nearly 20 years younger than the French first lady. U.K.’s Daily Mail reported that Seydoux, 25, reshot all of Bruni’s scenes.

Seydoux’s rep exclaims that the actress was merely added to the cast, but didn’t specify what part she was playing. The actress was recently in the running for the highly coveted part of Lisbeth Salander in the U.S. remake of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

Word from the film’s publicist is that “Midnight in Paris” will premiere in May at the Cannes Film Festival and mum’s the word as to who the entire cast is.

Allen’s romantic comedy ensemble “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” opens on September 22. “Stranger” stars Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts and Freida Pinto.
