Selena Gomez, Elle Fanning, Timothée Chalamet join new Woody Allen movie
Good things come in threes, especially when the bundle includes Selena Gomez, Timothée Chalamet, and Elle Fanning.
Amazon Studios announced Tuesday the trio of actors has joined Woody Allen’s latest untitled project, currently secured for theatrical distribution by the streaming giant’s television and motion picture production arm.
Gomez has appeared in major movies in the past, including Harmony Korine’s 2013 specialty hit Spring Breakers in addition to producing the popular Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. Fanning has built a robust filmography in recent years, working with big-name directors from Sofia Coppola (The Beguiled) and Nicolas Winding Refn (The Neon Demon) to Mike Mills (20th Century Women) and J.J. Abrams (Super 8) since 2011.
Chalamet, perhaps best known for his recurring role on season 2 of Showtime’s Homeland and a supporting part in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, is poised for a major breakout this year thanks to his starring turn in Luca Guadagnino’s Sundance hit Call Me by Your Name, which travels to the New York Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival ahead of an awards-friendly Nov. 24 theatrical bow.
Allen’s latest film, Wonder Wheel, will additionally screen as part of the upcoming New York Film Festival, closing the event with a world premiere showing before hitting theaters on Dec. 1, also via Amazon Studios — the first film Amazon will independently push to screens nationwide.
The 81-year-old cinema legend has partnered with Amazon in the past, most notably on his 2016 period film Café Society, which the distributor released as an acquisition title in addition to financing and distributing his first television series, Crisis in Six Scenes, which premiered in September of last year.
