Owen Wilson is broadening his horizons in terms of the directors he works with. He's recently signed on to writer/director Woody Allen's newest project, though scant details are known about it at this point. Oh, and one other thing: it looks like the French first lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, is also going to be in the film. What?!
Well, the first lady of France is definitely hot enough to be in the movies, that's for damn sure. But what a strange combination of forces: Wilson, Bruni-Sarkozy and Allen. The Risky Business blog tells us this about the film:
As with all the writer-director’s film work, Allen is keeping the untitled feature’s story line and characters hush-hush, and it’s not clear how big Wilson’s role is. In November, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, France’s first lady, mentioned that Allen had seduced her into taking a role in the film, though the writer-director’s camp would not confirm.
So at this point, it sounds like no one knows anything about anything. Hopefully that will change soon. Maybe the wife of Gordon Brown will get a part, too?
You have to admit it, though, this is one of the most intriguing projects Allen has lined up in a long time. Someone get Michelle Obama a script. She can probably act circles around the French first lady.
