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 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?

    You don't get Woody Allen's appeal, and you don't connect with Larry David's influence on Seinfeld or Curb Your Enthusiasm? Man, you must have had your funny bone surgically removed. Woody Allen + Larry David = Potential to be one of the funniest movies in a VERY long time.
  • I don't know what it is, but looking at these photos, it's one of the first times I'm very very interested in a Woody Allen film. I think it may have something to do with my infatuation with Evan Rachel Wood, when she's prettited up in movies at least, and just the fact that this seems genuinely quirk and entertaining... I'm looking forward to it too despite not knowing anything about Larry David or being that big of a fan of Woody Allen either. :)

    Woah, Nate said everything I wanted to say.

    I'm surprised that Larry David hasn't been a leading actor in a Woody film before. I'm sure he will be a perfect fit.

    Larry has his perfect 'Curb' posture in that second photo. It's like a frame from the show. If Larry plays himself more than Woody I'll be interested in this. But Woody's output has been steadily pretty mediocre lately with Scoop and such. Match Point was good, but if this is just a straight ahead romantic comedy, Larry will have to do some work to save it.

    Well, I'm a huge Larry David fan and I do enjoy most of Woody Allen's work. My opinion is simply: Why the hell not? This looks entertaining enough and I'm not one to judge a movie based off of a few pictures! Let's see what else leaks out and then I'll find out whether believing in this was a waste of time or well placed anticipation.
  • Larry David could sell me on murder.
  • mfdoom
    larry david is the man. If this movie is actually any good, it will be because of him.

    Wow. Aren't you a stupid idiot. Lay off David. Learn to laugh. And I bet you have knobby knees too. Seems good anyway.
