Untitled Summer Projects 2009, 10 and 11

The intelligent people over at Criterion Forum's Woody Allen board have helped us piece together his upcoming projects, for the years 2009, 10, and 11 respectively. All three projects will be based in Europe, the first will likely be filmed in Paris. The other two locations are uncertain, but Spain is likely. Based on the Criterion discussion, previously published reports and press releases, we know that Mediapro and Gravier Productions will produce the films at a budget of 22 million, a sharp increase over recent Allen films. It appears that crew members will enjoy the luxury of free coffee after lunch.

Whatever Works is not one of these productions. So, health providing, the film-loving public can anticipate at least four more Allen films. Whether or not Whatever Works marks his final NYC film is unknown. As Allen once quipped, if he can't match Bergman's quality, he might be lucky enough to match his quantity. We should be so fortunate.
