With the release of Cafe Society on the horizon, Woody Allen isn’t taking a break as he is currently curating his cast for his next film. Jim Belushi is the latest actor to join the ensemble of the UNTITLED WOODY ALLEN FILM which currently stars Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet.
Story details about the project have been kept under wraps, but it will be a period drama set in New York during the ’50s. In addition to writing and directing, Allen will also produce alongside Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum, and Edward Walson. No word yet on who will be distributing the film. In the past, Allen has worked with Sony Pictures Classics until recently when he collaborated with Amazon Studios for Cafe Society, which opened the Cannes Film Festival.
Belushi can be seen in the sports comedy Undrafted. He also appears in the David Lynch’s forthcoming reboot of Twin Peaks.
