EXCLUSIVE: James Belushi has been set to join Kate Winslet to star in the ensemble of the next untitled film written and directed by Woody Allen. As usual, Allen keeps the details under wraps, but the project is a period drama set in the late ’50s and he will shoot it in New York. Allen is producing with Letty Aronson and Edward Walson.
Allen hasn’t yet set a distributor; after a long run with Sony Pictures Classics, he aligned with Amazon Studios for his most recent pic, Cafe Society, which opened the Cannes Film Festival. Lionsgate releases the film July 15.
Belushi is repped by ICM Partners and Brillstein Entertainment.
