Nicole Kidman has reportedly joined the cast of Woody Allen’s latest, as-yet-untitled project set for 2010. She joins the likes of Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, Naomi Watts and rising Slumdog-star Freida Pinto.
Little is known about the project thus far, just that it’s set in London and that Woody still has the juice to attract a pretty darn special cast to his work.
I haven’t been entirely kind to his last few works, in fact I would suggest he hasn’t done anything truly good since 1999’s Sweet and Lowdown, an underrated work if ever I saw one. The likes of Match Point and Vicky Cristina Barcelona seems to have grabbed praise, but I’m of the school of thought that this is mostly based on happiness from fans that they aren’t as awful as Scoop, Anything Else or the truly, truly terrible Hollywood Ending.
His upcoming project for this year is Whatever Works, headed by Evan Rachel Wood and Larry David.
