First Look: Evan Rachel Wood and Larry David in Woody Allen's Next
I know die-hard Woody Allen fans will enjoy a few on-scene shots in Manhattan from the legendary auteur's latest project - a still-untitled romantic comedy starring hot-property Evan Rachel Wood and Larry David. The two certainly make for an odd pair. These photos are a few days old, but still worth checking out, if not just to stare awkwardly at the two quirky actors in character. This film marks Woody Allen's 42nd feature after Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which debuted at Cannes and hits theaters later this year. Check out just a few photos courtesy of TheBadandUgly.com below.
Wood is certainly looking fetching nowadays - in a much more mature way than in Running with Scissors and in a much less scary way than when seen with her beau Marilyn Manson. However, opposite frumpy ole David, I still get bit of a creepy vibe. The plot is still being kept under wraps, but it involves a relationship between this young and old pair, in some quirky fashion.
The 2009-slated film is described as a romantic comedy, so I guess these photos must be during a particularly uncomfortable scene. Wood doesn't exactly look thrilled. Would you be thrilled standing next to an old man with knobby knees, bad socks, holding a bundle of bananas? It's either supposed to be really funny or really awkward. This is only a guess, since I'm not completely hip to the Allen formula and appeal. And David's influence in "Seinfeld" and his own HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm" didn't especially connect with me. The project is intriguing, nevertheless. What do you think?
