Johansson directs with Woody Allen

ScarlettJohansson.jpgScarlett Johansson is set to go behind the camera for a film which promises to be the American version of Paris je t'aime (Filmstalker review), a film which I really enjoyed and has some gorgeous moments to it.

Not only that but Woody Allen and Scarlett Johansson are set to direct segments of the film along with a host of other great names.

The project is, imaginatively called, New York, I Love You - now who would have thought that it was anything to do with Paris je t'aime?

Joking aside I'd love to see this become a series visiting well known capitals of the world and taking looks at love through the eyes of the city and the Director's from that country. There's perhaps only a few more it would work with, but it could still be done.

Anyway, New York, I Love You will feature the same idea as Paris je t'aime, twelve film-makers will direct a short film, circa five minutes, showing love in the city of New York.

So far the confirmations for Directors are:

Fatih Akin, Yvan Attal, Zach Braff, Albert Hughes, Allen Hughes, Wen Jiang, Joshua Marston, Anthony Minghella, Mira Nair, Chan-wook Park, Brett Ratner, Andrei Zvyagintsev and Randall Balsmeyer who is noted as being the Director of the transitions.

Chan-wook Park, Anthony Minghella, Zach Braff and Woody Allen? That's an interesting list already, never mind all the other names on board, but Brett Ratner? I wonder how that one will turn out!

It'll also be interesting to see what Scarlett Johansson can do behind the camera, should the story from Page Six through Jo Blo turn out to be true. If you haven't seen Paris je t'aime, I would recommend it.
