Hugh Cast in Next Allen Feature


It was reported back in April that Scarlett Johansson was going to follow-up her turn in the Woody Allen directed Match Point, which debuted at Cannes this year, with another Allen film, which is yet to be titled, and now she has found who she will be paired with.

Variety is reporting that Aussie actor Hugh Jackman will be featured in the film along with Woody Allen as filming is set to begin on June 27 in London even though the feature is set in New York City.

On top of Jackman being cast it was previously announced that “Deadwood” star Ian McShane was also a member of the cast.

As far as the premise of the feature Allen told Variety, “The film is a comedy melodrama that is contemporary and takes place in London… Johansson plays a visiting American student who has a love affair with a British aristocrat. I play a low-grade American entertainer, which is perfect for me because that’s what I am.”

This will be Jackman’s primer as he is also set to reprise his role as Wolverine in X-Men 3, that is if Fox doesn’t do anymore cast shifting.
