Does Woody Allen ever consider putting down his typewriter and think about taking a well-deserved holiday?

At the age of 74 there’s no sign of that yet as he’s currently in production with his 41st feature, Midnight in Paris.

The Playlist have posted some images from the shoot and it’s the first time Allen has been back since the sublime Everyone Says I Love You to France’s capital, whose luminous streets replace the rustic and sultry Spanish hills of and Vicky Christina Barcelona.

As always, Allen has managed to populate the cast with a number of diverse and interesting talent, including Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen, Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachael McAdam, Alison Pil (you may remember her from Gus Van Sant’s Milk), upcoming Thor baddie Tom Hiddleston and France’s very own first lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.

It’s interesting to note that this is Allen’s first period piece since Sweet and Lowdown, but whether it has any bearings on the quality of the finished product (which with the recent exception of Vicky Christina Barcelona, has been varied to say the least!) remains to be seen

Allen’s next theatrical feature You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger is scheduled for release in the UK, autumn time.
