In Production: Storaro to shoot Woody Allen’s Next Film
Vittorio Storaro is the latest addition to an impressive list of prestigious DPs Woody Allen has teamed up with throughout his career. Shooting begins this month in Los Angeles and New York on the 1930's period piece, set to premiere in 2016. Gordon Willis, Sven Nykvist, Harry Savides, Vilmos Zsigmond and Darius Khondji have each had a hand in the look of Woody Allen's films throughout his career. Willis, often called the "Prince of darkness," helped the prince of dark neurotic comedy establish his look - he shot eight of Allen's most iconic films, including Annie Hall (1977), Manhattan (1979) and Stardust Memories (1980). Allen's most recent project with Khondji, Irrational Man, is still playing at a theater near you, and the rumors of his next release are already a'buzzin. The film boasts an all-star cast befitting its ensemble director. Jesse Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Bruce Willis, Kristen Stewart, Anna Camp, Paul Schneider, and many more are expected to don their depression-era best for this project.
