Alec Baldwin has been signed to headline the next film from Woody Allen. The untitled project is set to film in Rome later on this year. Beyond the shooting location, the regular Woody Allen cloak of secrecy covers the project so that all we know is that it is a romance and Penelope Cruz is already in the cast. Reportedly Jesse Eisenberg is also up for a role.
This will be the second time t hat Baldwin will have teamed with Allen. Baldwin previously appeared in Allen’s 1990 comedy Alice, one of the director’s more forgettable films.
Recently, Baldwin has dropped hints about possibly retiring in the future. Before that happens though, we’ll see him in this, the Adam Shankman-directed New Line musical Rock Of Ages with Diego Gonzalez Boneta, Julianne Hough, Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige and Russell Brand and at least one more season of NBC’s hit comedy 30 Rock.
