First images of Emma Stone and Colin Firth from Woody Allen's period comedy Magic in the Moonlight
Woody Allen isn't resting on the success and acclaim from this year's BLUE JASMINE and is hard at work on future projects including his next film. The newly titled MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT stars Eileen Atkins, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, Emma Stone, Jacki Weaver, Erica Leerhsen, Catherine McCormack, Paul Ritter and Jeremy Shamos. . and will be hitting theaters next summer. We now have our first look at the main castmembers in costume.
Not much is known about the plot of MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT aside from the fact that Firth and Stone play a couple and it takes place in the early 20th Century in the south of France. Aside from that, the rest is to be revealed. If Allen's recent work is any indicator, the film could be a broader comedy like MIDNIGHT IN PARIS or something bordering on drama like BLUE JASMINE. Either way, the cast is solid so it should at least be mildly entertaining.
Woody Allen has been very hit or miss through his career, but over the last ten films he has had a lot more hits than misses. I still hope he can turn in a movie like MATCH POINT which was by far his best film in a long time, but BLUE JASMINE is damn good as well. I am not sure what to make of MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT, but I am keeping an open mind.
