Woody Allen heading back to Europe


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Woody Allen has told 1,000 New York stories. His creative needle now points due East, over the Atlantic Ocean to new territories. The legendary filmmaker is about to add Rome to the list of European metropolises he’s exploring in the latter stages of his directorial career.

“Don’t ask me about the script or the cast, I’m superstitious,” Allen told Italian newspaper La Repubblica (via the NY Times). Allen’s latest film, “Midnight in Paris,” is going to open the 64th annual Cannes Film Festival on May 11.

Aside from France, Allen has been filming in London (“Match Point,” “Scoop”) and Barcelona (“Vicky Cristina Barcelona”). He returned to the Big Apple for the Larry David-led “Whatever Works,” but since that didn’t work, he’s heading back to Europe.

“It’s fantastic to have the possibility to work [in Rome],” Allen said. “Like when I shot ‘Manhattan’ in New York, ‘Match Point’ in London and ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’ in Barcelona. Each time, it’s like a declaration of love for certain places. I project onto the big screen my feelings for places which count a lot in my life.”
