Woody Allen Reveals ‘Midnight in Paris’ Details

Director confirms rumored cast, including Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams and Carla Bruni

Following months of casting rumors common with every Woody Allen movie, the 74-year-old muse-prone director made an unusual move on Friday: he announced the title, cast and details of his latest film, “Midnight in Paris.”

As expected, the cast includes Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. Michael Sheen, Nina Arianda, Tom Hiddleston, Corey Stoll, Mimi Kennedy and Kurt Fuller are also on Allen’s roster this round.

The romantic comedy “follows a family travelling to the city for business … The party includes a young engaged couple that has their lives transformed throughout the journey."

In a statement, Allen said the film "celebrates a young man’s great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.”

The film is scheduled to shoot this summer in Paris.

"Midnight in Paris" is the third in a three-picture financing deal between Allen’s Gravier Productions and Mediapro, the Spanish company which funded Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and the upcoming “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger."
