Midnight in Paris is shaping up as not only Woody Allen's widest release ever (1038 screens, more than Anything Else), but the filmmaker's biggest hit ever; it's on track to outscore Hannah and Her Sisters's $40 million domestic gross. Midnight in Paris dropped only 10% last weekend, for a total $21,799,214.

Midnight in Paris is shaping up as not only Woody Allen's widest release ever (1038 screens, more than Anything Else), but the filmmaker's biggest hit ever; it's on track to outscore Hannah and Her Sisters's $40 million domestic gross. Midnight in Paris dropped only 10% last weekend, for a total $21,799,214.

So the next question is: can he do it again? Allen has finalized his full cast for The Bop Decameron, which shoots in Rome, Italy, starting July 11.

In alphabetical order, the film will star (pictured): Woody Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. In TOH's interview with Eisenberg for A Social Network, he confessed how much he wanted to act in an Allen film. He has his wish.

The film's Italian co-stars are Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio and Alessandro Tiberi. The film is being financed by Italian company, Medusa Film.
