We reported two days ago that Alec Baldwin secured a role in the project, with Jesse Eisenberg in talks for a lead role. Jesse Eisenberg's deal has now been finalized, although it still isn't clear what kind of character he is playing. No character details were given for Ellen Page or Penélope Cruz's characters either.
Woody Allen will direct from his own screenplay, with Letty Aronson and Helen Robin. All that is known about the story is that it will be set in Rome.
Like Jesse Eisenberg, the Untitled Woody Allen Project will be Ellen Page's first movie with the legendary filmmaker. Penélope Cruz previously worked with Woody Allen in the 2008 comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona, where she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
