Woody Allen has gone public with details about his upcoming film, titled “Midnight in Paris” and shooting this summer in Paris.

Deals for Wilson, Cotillard and McAdams had been disclosed in late March while the participation of Bruni — wife of French president Nicolas Sarkozy – had been rumored for months but the remainder of the cast had stayed under the radar.
“Midnight in Paris” is a romantic comedy that follows a family travelling to the city for business, including a young engaged couple that has their lives transformed throughout the journey. “The film celebrates a young man’s great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better,” the announcement said.
Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaume Roures are producing “Paris,” part of a three-picture financing deal between Allen’s Gravier Prods. and Mediapro.
Spain-based Mediapro also funded Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and his upcoming “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” set to be released domestically by Sony Pictures Classics this fall. “Stranger” is also set to screen out of competition at Cannes next month.
International sales for “Paris” for most markets are being handled by Imagina International Sales.
