US film director Woody Allen (R) stands near US actor Jesse Eisenberg (L) and Canadian actress Ellen Page on the set of ‘Bop Decameron’, the cult filmmaker’s latest production, at Campo de’ Fiori square in central Rome, on July 28, 2011. 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.

Though reports had him negotiating a deal in Copenhagen, Woody Allen says his next film will be filmed in New York and San Francisco, putting an end to his recent hot streak of European movie locations (Barcelona, London, Paris, and Rome, to be exact). Allen told the press gathered at a hometown screening for To Rome With Love that he had no idea how the Copenhagen rumors got started (so Vulture assumes that someone was playing a Woody Allen version of the “finger on the map” game and then started talking too loudly). Anyway, Woody is coming home!
