Well this is good news. Hidden amongst the full cast list for Woody Allen’s next installment in his A City A Year: How To See All Major European Cities As An Oscar Winning Writer is the title of his Roman escape: The Bop Decameron. It was originally called The Wrong Picture but now that has been corrected. What does that even mean? Who the hell knows. It’s Woody Allen to boot so that doesn’t really offer any help either. The Decameron is a collection of short medieval Italian novellas and it looks like that class in medieval Italian literature finally paid off (full disclosure: Wikipedia). And since the film is comprised of a collection of different vignettes, perhaps it’s a shout out.
Anyway, the full cast includes Allen himself, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page with Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio and Alessandro Tiberi in supporting turns. I really, really liked Midnight in Paris and hopefully ‘ole Woody can do it again next year.
