WOODY ALLEN TRILOGY PLANNED
NEW YORK, BARCELONA, LONDON, ROME – Writer, wit, film-maker, clarinet player and international playboy, Woody Allen talked EXCLUSIVELY to Studio Exec today about his post-Batman plans.
“I’ve been working on a series of scripts for a trilogy,” said Woody Allen, laughing. “Once I’m done with Gotham, I want to get back out there and do some pictures set in European capitals starring sexy ladies, but each film with only three or four good jokes, five jokes tops.”
The director of Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Midnight in Paris and To Rome with Love, Woody – who was named after his mother’s favourite flavour of whiskey (“I was lucky, my brothers Peaty and Strong Caramel After Taste less so”) – said:
Working on Batman has been a complete departure for me, and I’ve enjoyed it but I want to get back to what I do best: disappointing my fans. I have three scripts ready to go which I’ll be making as a trilogy. Scarlett Johansson is back for Wednesday Afternoon in Oslo, then Mila Kunis will be strangling an English accent in To Coventry with Animosity. And finally I have the wonderfully talented Eva Green in Penelope Jennifer Stuttgart.
Woody Allen’s Batman is due for release in 2016.
