Cate Blanchett for new Woody Allen movie?
Woody Allen wants Cate Blanchett and Bradley Cooper for his latest movie.
The legendary director - who is notoriously reluctant to release details of his films ahead of production - is said to be eyeing Danish capital Copenhagen as the setting for his new movie which will feature Cate as the star and Bradley as part of an ensemble cast.
Although he has focused on his directing work in recent years - winning the Best Original Screenplay Oscar this year for his work on 'Midnight in Paris' - it was recently revealed Woody will play an ageing escort in 'Fading Gigolo', an indie comedy written and directed by John Turturro.
John will also star as a gigolo in the movie, which tells the story of two ''cash-strapped best friends'' who go into the escort business and find their local Hasidic Jewish community suspecting them of unusual goings-on, Variety reports.
Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone are set to play two of the women who pick up the ageing men.
It will be the first time Woody has acted in a film since 'Picking Up The Pieces' 12 years ago.
