Elle Fanning & Timothée Chalamet Shoot Woody Allen Project Film In New York City
Elle Fanning and Timothée Chalamet were spotted in New York City filming Woody Allen‘s latest project.
WOODY ALLEN PROJECT FILMING IN NEW YORK
The film is as of yet untitled, and stars Selena Gomez as well as Fanning and Chalamet. This will be the third film that Allen directs for Amazon Studios, following Cafe Society and the upcoming Wonder Wheel. He also worked with Amazon on his first foray into television, with the failed Crisis in Six Scenes.
Chalamet, 21, has earned rave reviews and even Oscar buzz for his performance in Call Me By Your Name, a Luca Guadiagnino film about a love affair between a 17-year-old boy and a 24-year-old man. Fanning most recently had a supporting role in The Beguiled, and starred in The Neon Demon. Gomez is a pop singer, who jumped from Disney Channel acting to Spring Breakers to challenge her innocent image.
Allen’s films have generally been secretive affairs, and this current project has not even been given a public name, so the plot and characters are unknown.
Wonder Wheel, starring Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, and James Belushi, will premiere at the closing night of the New York Film Festival in October. It opens in theaters on Dec. 1. Allen’s career has spanned decades, during which he’s won four Oscars. His career has been controversial, however, thanks to his decision to marry his ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow‘s adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, and due to sexual abuse claims brought on by his own daughter Dylan Farrow.
