Woody Allen's new comedy film which will be set in Rome is said to have found its first major star. Deadline have reported that Alec Baldwin has all but signed up to the project which will make it the first time Allen and Baldwin have teamed up since 1990 with 'Alice'. The film will follow Baldwin's coming appearance in the Warner Bros. film 'Rock Of Ages' in an adaptation of the Broadway musical alongside stars such as Tom Cruise. And what of 'The Social Network' star Jesse Eisenberg? Yes, he too may be starring the film and is in line to take the lead role. The new fan favourite's involvement is as yet just a rumour but he could just bag it.
Allen's current project 'Midnight In Paris', a romantic comedy that centre's on the French capital, is set to be released in May of this year and will star Owen Wilson and Michael Sheen among others. Allen seems to be continuing his run of writing/directing at least one film each year. With that amount of traffic it's no surprise some of them have gone unappreciated so only time will tell if this latest film will get the critics in a positive mood. If Eisenberg does become involved however the film would gain a level of prestige that comes with a hot young star joining a cast.
