There has been no end to speculation about where Woody Allen would be making his next film. Copenhagen and Munich were two of the most recent cities said to be in the mix for the writer/director's next venture, while any possibility of the Allen returning to his native U.S. soil were long put to pasture as financing from American backers has been dry for years. But in a pleasant surprise, it looks like Woody won't need his passport for his next movie.

While there are still those who will bitch and moan that Woody Allen's comedies haven't evolved much over the past few decades, for those with appropriate expectations, the director's films are -- even at their flimsiest -- generally a delightful annual treat. And so it goes with "To With Rome Love," which hardly breaks new ground, but offers up enough charms that we're looking forward to it.

Despite fierce competition from sci-fi blockbuster "Star Wars" and fellow romantic comedy "The Goodbye Girl," Woody Allen's masterpiece "Annie Hall" walked away with Best Picture at the 50th Academy Awards, which were held on this day thirty-four years ago. Indeed, Allen's film nearly swept the board, despite only taking five nominations: Allen won Best Director and, alongside co-writer Marshall Brickman, Original Screenplay (although he lost Best Actor to Richard Dreyfuss), while Diane Keaton picked up Best Actress for the title role.

Woody Allen is like a little neurotic, Jewish Energizer bunny. With "To Rome With Love" in the bag and set for release this summer, his calendar is no less full, with a starring role in John Turturro's "Fading Gigolo" around the corner, and a Broadway bound "Bullets Over Broadway" in the works. And though his next film isn't slated to shoot until early 2013, Allen is apparently already eyeballing a cast.

Lest you think winning an Oscar for Best Screenplay for "Midnight In Paris," taking a starring role in the upcoming comedy "Fading Gigolo" and preparing "Bullets Over Broadway" for the musical stage has kept Woody Allen from keeping his eye on his next movie, guess again. With Europe continuing to inspire a late career rebound with movies set in London, Paris, Barcelona and Rome ("Nero Fiddled"), it's no shocker that the helmer is once again looking overseas as the setting for his next outing.

Aside from only a small role in "Hannah & Her Sisters," it's actually a bit surprising that John Turturro never starred in a Woody Allen movie. He seems like the perfect, neurotic Allen surrogate but alas it has never come to pass. The pair also crossed paths nearly 15 years later in the little seen comedy "Company Men," where Allen had a cameo role. Now, more than a decade on from that, the duo are set to share another film set, although this time, in a much larger capacity.
