Johansson for Barcelona? Bardem leaves Allen?

ScarlettJohansson.jpgIt appears that Woody Allen may have happened upon a new muse as word is spreading that Scarlett Johansson may well be cast in Allen's new Barcelona film which I already reported is set to star Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem.

Oh, although there's another rumour out today from those pesky sources that say Bardem may have either left the project, or just not signed up to it. Unconfirmed as always, and to be taken with a pinch and a half of salt.

I'm not so sure about this one as it would be great exposure to be in a Spanish film directed by Allen, especially with the growing cast list, mind you if you had specifically signed up to a Spanish film and then started hearing about the American actors appearing in it you might start to be a little concerned about the direction. Then again, it's Johansson, a great actress.

IESB have the rumour while Coming Soon tell us that Johansson and Rebecca Hall from The Prestige (Filmstalker review) are being eyed for the cast.

Allen has said that the film is romantic but serious, and he's gathering an all Spanish crew with Spanish cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe reportedly onboard too.

It all seems up in the air at the moment, but I'm looking forward to how this one progresses. I'm sure Peter is too.



Where did you hear that about Bardem? I read that he was in Barcelona on Monday and he said that he is doing the film. I don't think he would say that if it wasn't definite.

Straight from the IESB article, as I said, pinch of salt these are rumours.

Thanks for the update though, I didn't think he wouldn't do the film, it's a great opportunity.

Well I think the IESB rumour is pretty much debunked and we're safe in the knowledge that Bardem is on for the film.
