Woody Allen’s Upcoming Movie Brings in Star-Studded Cast

Famed director Woody Allen is all set to make another movie. Even though, he’s not giving out further details about the film, it has been revealed that he’s bringing in quite a star-studded cast, which includes Jesse Eisenberg, Bruce Willis, and César awardee Kristen Stewart.

Deadline reports that Woody Allen has Jesse Eisenberg, Bruce Willis and Kristen Stewart on board for his upcoming movie. Unfortunately, as always, Allen prefers to keep the plot details of the still-untitled movie under wraps. It has been confirmed though that his usual movie collaborators Edward Walson, Letty Arsonson and Stephen Tenenbaum will also serve as producers of this film.


Stewart and Willis will be working with Allen for the first time. Eisenberg, on the other hand, has previously been taken under the director’s wing in the 2012 comedy movie ‘To Rome with Love’. Eisenberg and Willis are both represented by CAA, while Stewart is represented by Gersh.

Eisenberg had previously worked together with Stewart in two other movies, ‘Adventureland’ in 2009 and ‘American Ultra’, set for release this year. Aside from this, he has also just finished shooting for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘The End of the Tour’. He is currently shooting for ‘Now You See Me 2: The Second Act’.

Stewart, on the other hand, made history as the first American actress to win the César Award for the movie ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’ last month. Her recent movies include ‘Still Alice’ with Oscar Best Actress Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin. ‘Equals’, also starring Nicolas Hoult, will also be released this year.

Willis has just signed up for a role in Broadway’s ‘Misery’. Later this year, he will be starring in the comedy ‘Rock the Kasbah’ by Barry Levinson.

Allen’s movie is set for release in 2016. His upcoming film ‘Irrational Man’ will be released by Sony Pictures Classics on July 24, starring Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix.
