With "Midnight In Paris" getting some of the best reviews Allen has received in years, and hitting the box office with a force the director's works haven't seen in decades, it seems like the helmer is on a new peak with his career. As per usual, he's already at work on his next film, continuing his pace of one movie per year, and today the full cast has been announced with a couple of exciting additions.

With "Midnight In Paris" getting some of the best reviews Allen has received in years, and hitting the box office with a force the director's works haven't seen in decades, it seems like the helmer is on a new peak with his career. As per usual, he's already at work on his next film, continuing his pace of one movie per year, and today the full cast has been announced with a couple of exciting additions.

Greta Gerwig and Alison Pill, along with Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti and Alessandro Tiberi have all come on board Allen's Rome-set "Bop Decameron." They join Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, Roberto Benigni and Judy Davis in the film that is loosely based on the Decameron, a collection of over 100 14th century novellas by Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio. The plot will involve four unconnected vignettes, two of which involve American characters in the city, the other two involving Italian cast members—and it seems likely that the latter two segments will actually be in Italian.

Notably, names like Isabella Ferrari, Sergio Rubini and Maricel Álvarez previously tapped for roles are absent from the announcement, so we would imagine their deals didn't go through or scheduling was an issue. Naturally, there is no word on the characters anybody will play at this point but it looks like the Allen is stirring up yet another intriguing concoction.

Filming is slated to begin on July 11th.
