At the rate Woody Allen works, it's no surprise that attention has already turned to his next film, rather than the one that's opening the Cannes Film Festival next month. Well, you will no longer have to use "Woody Allen Fall Project 2011" to describe the movie, as it now has a title.

At the rate Woody Allen works, it's no surprise that attention has already turned to his next film, rather than the one that's opening the Cannes Film Festival next month. Well, you will no longer have to use "Woody Allen Fall Project 2011" to describe the movie, as it now has a title.

In an interview Le Journal du dimanche, Allen revealed the film will be called "The Wrong Picture." Of course, he wouldn't divulge the plot details but he did quash any rumors that Carla Bruni -- who appears in "Midnight In Paris" -- would be getting another role in the film saying, "I know it has been rumored recently. But no, she has no intention of becoming an actress. Her participation in 'Midnight in Paris,' last year, it was primarily for fun."

As for the cast he has so far assembled including Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Alec Baldwin and Penelope Cruz, he says that Eisenberg was "remarkable" in "The Social Network" and Page was a "revelation" in "Juno." There is more casting to come, with a some Italian thesps to be named.

Filming on "The Wrong Picture" will get underway in Rome this summer and you might as well pencil in another out-of-competition next spring in Cannes for the picture. "Midnight In Paris" kicks off Cannes on May 11th and opens on May 20th in limited release.
