EXCLUSIVE: Fresh from opening The Age Of Adaline, Blake Lively will join the ensemble cast of Woody Allen’s next film. She will join Jesse Eisenberg, Bruce Willis and Kristen Stewart, I’m told. As usual, the film is untitled and there are no plot details, but the picture is being produced by Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, his usual collaborators.
Allen is casting the film as he prepares for the Cannes premiere of Irrational Man, which stars Emma stone and Joaquin Phoenix and will be released by Sony Pictures Classics July 17.
It’s a good time for Lively, as Age Of Adaline has grossed $24 million so far domestically as nice counter programming against the behemoth Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Lively is next booked to star alongside Jason Clarke in the Marc Forster-directed All I See Is You. Then she will join Allen’s film. She’s repped by WME and Management 360.
