Ellen Page added to Woody Allen Rome ensemble

Hollywoodnews.com: Leave it to 75-year-old writer-director Woody Allen to stay ahead of the pack.
On the morning that it was announced that Allen’s “Midnight In Paris” officially would open the 64th Cannes Film Festival in May, casting news breaks regarding Allen’s next picture.
Saying that Allen won’t stop until he’s dead is an understatement. We’d be amazed if he actually, you know, slowed down just a little and maybe put out a film every two years instead of the one-a-year pace he has been keeping. He puts directors like James Cameron and Peter Jackson to shame. Seriously, Allen will have roughly five films out before Cameron finally delivers his first “Avatar” sequel. That’s insane.
But I digress. Allen has lined up Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Penelope Cruz and Ellen Page for a mysterious project being filmed in Rome, Variety reports. We say mysterious because the film doesn’t have a title yet, and details are being kept under wraps, so we don’t know if Allen’s aiming for a comedy, a drama, or what.
We’ll find out when we find out, but I like the ensemble, and I hope Rome revives the filmmaker’s storytelling juices the way Spain and England have in the past.
