Though his latest film, "Blue Jasmine," hasn’t even been released yet, Woody Allen is already starting work on his next directorial effort, continuing his annual ritual. And his new leading lady is someone you might not expect.

None other than Emma Stone is being wooed to take on the starring role in the currently untitled project. As is par for the course with the prolific director, everything is being kept under wraps, so all we literally know at this point is that Stone, if talks are successful, will star and that Allen will return to France for the shoot. However, there are some rumbling that the filmmaker was a British actor for the male lead. Send in those headshots guys.

Shooting would likely start sometime this year with a release for next year. Allen’s next film, the Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin and Louis C.K. starring “Blue Jasmine” will hit theaters this summer on July 26th. Check out a couple of new pics from the movie below, including the first look at Louis C.K. [Deadline/The Wrap]

    I can't see her turning this down. She's a huge Woody Allen fan.

    Would July/ August be a reasonable guess for the start of filming? Or maybe October if Woody wants a wintery sun?

    I know what you meant, mark; a foolish comment to a genuine, relevant question. The details given out all point at summer, though they probably all come from the same press release...

    Winter begins Novemeber 1st on the calender, so someone does need one. I understand what you mean by the winter sun being present in late October, it's there minus the cold December brings. It's for the camera, Estlin Cooper. Please stop trying to feel superior.

    Wintery sun in October? Where? On Neptune? Winter begins December 21. Weird comment. Maybe an autumnal sun. But surely not a winter sun. Someone needs a calendar.

    The grammar in this story is horrible. Didn't you have someone read it for OMISSIONS before you published it? If so, that person should be fired. If not, I'm available.

    I agree that it's not perfect, but if you're going to be picky, let's look at your writing.
    Remove your dangling modifier; say "this story's execution is horrible." "Did someone not read it for omissions" is better than "did not someone read this" (yes, I know you said didn't, but I want to prove its awkwardness). I don't like your ifs, but technically, they're okay. There's a reason you're available.

    Hmm, wonder who the British leading man will end up being...Michael Fassbender? James McAvoy? Or, if it's a more typically nebbish type, someone like Martin Freeman? Or maybe Woody will get an actor he's worked with before like Henry Cavill or Matthew Goode...

    In any case, I hope Emma Stone ends up signing, she'd be a great addition to Woody's troupe.

    I have the bad feeling she'll be even more annoying than Evan Rachel Wood in Whatever Works.

    The Louis CK photo was already in the New York Times.
