Allen shows no signs of slowing down as he approaches 80.
Prolific filmmaker Woody Allen has already completed his next movie. It is the romantic comedy Magic in the Moonlight, due to be released July 25.
Set in the 1920s on the French Riviera, the movie tells the story of a British stage magician and master illusionist, played by Oscar winner Colin Firth, who is enlisted to determine whether or not a mystic, played by Emma Stone, is a fraud.
The movie also stars Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden.
Allen has now written more than sixty movies for television and the screen, and directed close to fifty.
Magic in the Moonlight is scheduled to open this summer’s Hong Kong International Film Festival.
Next up for Allen is his new and still untitled project due out next year. The director has begun auditions for the movie to be filmed in Rhode Island.
Born Allan Stewart Konigsberg in the Bronx, and raised in Brooklyn, Woody Allen has won three Oscars for best original screenplay for the movies Midnight in Paris, Hannah and her sisters and Annie Hall. He also won the best director and best picture Oscars for Annie Hall and was nominated for best actor for it.
