Woody Allen set for Paris Manhattan

He'll star in French filmmaker's debut

Woody Allen will be gracing our screens once again, but not in one of his own pictures.

The diminutive auteur been noticeably absent from his recent directorial output, last appearing in 2006's little-seen Scoop.

French newspaper Le Parisien report that Woody will be starring in the debut feature by French short-filmmaker Sophie Lellouche, entitled Paris Manhattan. A very Woody-sounding title, no?

Lellouche's film focuses on a thirty-something pharmacist, played by Alice Taglioni, and her family's attempts to cure her of her Woody Allen obsession by setting her up with a fine French gentleman.

There's no word yet on when we'll see this, although some shooting has allegedly begun.

Meanwhile, Mr Allen can be found playing his clarinet across Europe, and his latest movie, Midnight in Paris, officially opens the Cannes film festival on May 11th.

Sound like an interesting concept? We want to hear what you think below.

      I wish he would start acting in his own films again. It's just not the same when he gets Larry David or whoever to play him.
