Rio Wants Woody: Allen Offered "100%" Funding to Shoot His Next Film in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

feedproxy.google.com – Woody Allen, Rio is calling. In a recent interview, Rio de Janeiro mayor Eduardo Paes made it clear that he wants the "Blue Jasmine" director to make his next film in Brazil's second-largest sprawling metropolis: "I'll pay 100% of the production. I'll pay whatever it takes to get him to come film here." Paes has already made a number of attempts to lure Allen to his city, saying in the interview that he contacted Allen's sister and long-time producer Letty Aronson, and sent the director a message via Spanish architect and Allen's NY neighbor Santiago Calatrava. 8 years 21 weeks ago via theothersenhman

Woody Allen Says He's Been Offered Financing To Shoot In Stockholm, But Needs A Good Idea First

fb.indiewire.com – If you thought Woody Allen just went through his drawer of ideas, wrote up a screenplay and then just followed the money to wherever would be most advantageous to shoot, it seems that's not always the case. While recent years have seen the writer/director decamp to London, Barcelona, Paris and Rome (and he returns to France this year to shoot his next film starring Emma Stone and Colin Firth) — and entertain possibilities inCopenhagenandMunich— it seems he does put some consideration into the story he's going to tell in each story. 8 years 23 weeks ago via brucelee

fb.indiewire.com – While his work ethic hasn't paused for a single moment, Woody Allen has lately been more content to work behind the camera rather than act in front of it. While he does have a role in John Turturro's upcoming "Fading Gigolo," the writer/director has been fairly selective about appearing in his own films, letting six years pass between "Scoop" and "To Rome With Love." But not that he hasn't thought about it, and it turns out one of his "Blue Jasmine" stars may be inspiring him to act again. 8 years 26 weeks ago via theothersenhman
