Woody Allen held a press conference on Monday in Barcelona, Spain about his new project that will be filmed in the city starting July 9, reports Variety.
“I hope I can present Barcelona to the world as I see it, the same way I presented Manhattan to the world as I saw it with my eyes,” said Allen. “I want to write a love letter to Barcelona and from Barcelona to the world.”
Allen announced that Patricia Clarkson, Kevin Dunn and Chris Messina have joined the cast. Toplining Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, a shroud of silence surrounds the film’s title and subject — as is usual with Allen’s pics.
The press conference did at least round out the full cast of the film.
Zak Orth (Music and Lyrics) and Pablo Schreiber (Lords of Dogtown) join the already-announced Carrie Preston in secondary roles.
Local actors scoring parts include Abel Folk, Lluis Homar, Joel Joan, Julio Perillan and Mireia Ros.
