Sally Hawkins (Submarine) is in talks to star in Woody Allen’s next, as-yet-untitled film.
Hawkins, who picked up a Golden Globe nomination for her role in Mike Leigh’s Happy-Go-Lucky, will play one of the two female leads in Allen’s follow-up to this summer’s To Rome with Love.
Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and Bradley Cooper (Limitless) are said to be circling other roles in the film, which is scheduled to shoot in San Francisco and New York later this year.
Plot details are unknown and, like all of Allen’s other films, will likely be kept under wraps until nearer the time of release.
Hawkins will next be seen in Mike Newell’s Great Expectations, opposite Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes, while Sony Pictures Classics is due to release To Rome with Love in US cinemas on June 22.
