Does Woody Allen have some sort of grudge against Germany? The filmmaker had flirted with the idea of setting his next movie there as recently as August, but now, The Hollywood Reporter writes that Allen and his producers are in talks with Danish authorities to film the production in Copenhagen next year. Then again, THR also claims that Allen won’t make the movie until 2013, which seems like an unusual amount of time off for the prolific, one-film-a-year director; does the source have its wires crossed, or have Allen’s other commitments (he’ll be acting in the film Fading Gigolo and scripting a stage transfer of Bullets Over Broadway) got him too busy?

The film’s crew has been spotted everywhere from the Spanish Steps to the Colosseum to Rome’s main shopping avenue, Via del Corso, and paparazzi have been kept busy chasing stars Alec Baldwin and Penelope Cruz.
