Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody has joined Woody Allen's star-studded cast for the romantic comedy Midnight in Paris.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film centers on a family traveling to the City of Lights for business. The party includes a young engaged couple forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better.

Sources describe Brody's role as "flashy."

The project begins shooting this summer in the French capital.
