Amazon is pulling in talent left and right. Spike Lee, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Jim Jarmusch, Terry Gilliam, and perhaps one stranger signee than any other: Woody Allen. When he signed the deal to make a TV series for Amazon, Allen joked “I don’t know how I got into this. I have no ideas, and I’m not sure where to begin.” Or we thought that was a joke, an expression of the anxiety that is one of his hallmarks.
Maybe that wasn’t just a gag. In a new interview, Allen says he knows nothing about TV, that “I’ve never seen anything online at all — nothing,” and that he doesn’t even know what a streaming service is. Amazon was relentless in pursuing him, finally grinding Allen down to the point where he said yes. But “I have regretted every second since I said OK,” he explains. Read More »

In typical Woody Allen fashion, the writer/director has been keeping details for his next film Irrational Man under tight wraps. But with the arrival of the first Irrational Man trailer, we finally have some idea of what this movie will be about.
Joaquin Phoenix stars as a philosophy professor who’s suffering from an existential crisis: he can’t write, he can’t breathe, he “couldn’t remember the reason for living,” as he says in the promo. But he gains new purpose when he strikes up a relationship with a beautiful young student played by Emma Stone. Watch the Irrational Man trailer after the jump. Read More »

2014 is turning out to be a big year for Emma Stone. She’s already had one big hit in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and has projects with Cameron Crowe and Alejandro González Iñárritu opening later this year. In between, she stars in Magic in the Moonlight, the latest from the prolific Woody Allen.
The Jazz Age dramedy stars Stone as a spirit medium who has won over a wealthy family in the South of France. Not everyone is totally convinced of her supernatural talents, though, and a stage magician (Colin Firth) is sent to debunk her. (So he’s a bit inspired by Harry Houdini, then?) Watch the first Magic in the Moonlight trailer after the jump.

Briefly: A few years ago, after the near-debacle of I’m Still Here, the future career of Joaquin Phoenix seemed to be in doubt. Not that his ability was ever in question — Phoenix is among the most talented actors working today — but his willingness to deal with the business end of the job seemed to have disappeared. But after The Master and Her, there’s no question that Phoenix is still going strong. Later this year he’s got another collaboration coming up with Paul Thomas Anderson: the Thomas Pynchon adaptation Inherent Vice.
Now Phoenix has been revealed as the star of Woody Allen‘s next project. (Or one of the stars, at least.) As is typical with Allen’s films in development, we have no info on the project. We don’t know what the tone or concept might be, or who Phoenix will play, or even the title of the movie. But we’ll take another role from Phoenix any day, whatever it might be. [Deadline]
