Woody Allen's Euro-Trip Continues; Eyes Munich As Setting For Next Film

Lensing on Woody Allen's Rome-set film, "Bop Decameron," is still in progress but it looks like the prolific director already has his sights set on the setting of his next film. Continuing his European adventures, Allen is reportedly eyeing a teaming with Bavaria Studios which would see him visit Munich, Germany next summer for his next, currently-untitled and as-always mysterious film. The budget would run at around $25 million.

Lensing on Woody Allen's Rome-set film, "Bop Decameron," is still in progress but it looks like the prolific director already has his sights set on the setting of his next film. Continuing his European adventures, Allen is reportedly eyeing a teaming with Bavaria Studios which would see him visit Munich, Germany next summer for his next, currently-untitled and as-always mysterious film. The budget would run at around $25 million.

The stop off in Munich will follow Allen's recent ventures in Barcelona ("Vicky Cristina Barcelona"), London ("You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger," "Match Point," "Cassandra's Dream," "Scoop") and Paris ("Midnight In Paris") which was all catalysed by his inability to shoot his scripts in the United States due to ballooning costs. 2005's "Match Point" was, in fact, originally set in New York and the Hamptons with Allen forced to anglicize it and shoot in London. It's certainly paying off, though, with "Midnight In Paris" now Allen's biggest box office success of his career that is even drawing Oscar talk from certain corners.

Allen has no problem attracting stars for these projects either with his latest congregating strong talents from around the globe: Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Greta Gerwig and Alison Pill all star with Italian thesps Robert Begnini, Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti and Alessandro Tiberi also on board for the story loosely based on the Decameron -- a collection of over 100 14th century novellas by Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio -- which will involve four unconnected vignettes, two of which involve American characters in the city, the other two involving Italian cast members. The latter two segments will likely be in Italian as well.

We're expecting nothing less from Allen's next with the Bavarian capital sure to rival its European counterparts as the extra character in the director's recent run abroad. We're sure he's doing wonders for tourism as well. [THR]
