First Look: Larry David in Woody Allen's Whatever Works
Remarkably, Woody Allen is still going strong even after 41 films. Anyone who saw Vicky Cristina Barcelona knows that he's still got it in him - even if he doesn't hit them out of the park, they're still at least doubles or triples. His next film is titled Whatever Works and is about a relationship between a grumpy old man and a young girl. "Seinfeld" star Larry David takes on the role of the older fellow while Evan Rachel Wood plays the younger one. The actual plot involves the two of them and Rachel Wood's mother and father getting "into a series of highly improbable, far out, romantic entanglements."
This isn't actually the first time we've seen some photos from the film - candid shots of the two were snapped while they were shooting on the streets of New York City in May. I will admit that the more of this I see, the more excited I am for it. Part of it has to do with the fact that Evan Rachel Wood looks adorably cute in her Southern girl getup and in turn, Larry David looks like one hell of hilarious scrawny old man to play off of. Thanks to Nouvelles Cinéma for this fun new batch of photos as seen below.
Whatever Works is both written and directed by legendary filmmaker Woody Allen. This is Allen's 42nd feature film, following Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Cassandra's Dream and Scoop from the past few years. This doesn't yet have a distributor and no release plans have been announced. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it premieres at Sundance in January, which would be Woody Allen's first time he has ever premiered at that festival. If it doesn't hit there, I'm sure it'll show up at Cannes in May before arriving in theaters sometime later in the year. Stay tuned for more updates on the film as we come across them!
