Woody Allen’s Next Movie Is Called ‘Blue Jasmine’


Sony Pictures Classics has acquired Woody Allen’s new movie, which was filmed in New York last year, and the studio announced the official title and plot for the movie today. Called Blue Jasmine, this is the first film Allen has made in New York City since 2009’s Whatever Works after making his last three movies in Rome, Paris, and London. Blue Jasmine is about the final stages of an acute crisis and a life of a fashionable New York housewife. For the film, Woody Allen assembled the kind of all-star cast that only he can pull together, with Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard, and Michael Stuhlbarg making up the core ensemble. Presumably, Louis C.K. isn’t playing the fashionable housewife.
