Deadline has picked off most of the casting of Woody Allen’s upcoming film already, but the Woodman has finalized the ensemble of the film he will shoot in San Francisco. The surprise is the additions of standup comedians Louis C.K. and especially Andrew Dice Clay. Dice had an arc of episodes on Entourage, but this is a big deal for him. Here’s the announcement.
NEW YORK (June 4, 2012) – Woody Allen announced today the cast of his latest untitled film. Starring, in alphabetical order, are Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Dice Clay, Michael Emerson, Sally Hawkins and Peter Sarsgaard. Co-stars include Max Casella and Alden Ehrenreich. It is a Gravier Productions film produced by Allen’s long time producers, Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum.
The new film will be shot in New York and San Francisco this summer. This marks Allen’s second time directing in San Francisco — his directorial debut, 1969’s TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN, was also set there.
Allen recently won an Academy Award® for Best Original Screenplay for MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. His upcoming film, TO ROME WITH LOVE, will be released on June 22 by Sony Pictures Classics.
