Woody Allen Sets His Sights on Copenhagen for Next Film
Continuing with his recent cinematic “Grand Tour” of Europe, Woody Allen is apparently looking at Copenhagen for his as-yet-untitled next project. Since 2005’s Matchpoint, staring Scarlett Johansson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Allen has shot all of his features in European cities including London, Barcelona, and Paris. Most recently, the filmmaker won his fourth Academy Award for his screenplay for Midnight in Paris, which was in essence, an ode to “The City of Lights”.

Letty Aronson, Allen’s producer of all his European films, is in discussions with Danish producer, Per Holst (1987’s Pelle the Conqueror) with hopes of a 2013 shoot-date in Copenhagen. The filmmaker is also hoping to secure financial aid from both the city and Danish government to bankroll the project.

Allen’s upcoming film, Nero Fiddled, starring Penelope Cruz, Ellen Page, and Jesse Eisenberg, which incidentally is set in Rome, is slated to open on April 20.
