Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Bruce Willis. Here are three actors who probably have nothing in common. And until today that was likely the case. Now that’s all gone because they’re going to be in the next Woody Allen movie.
Of these three names, two feel just right for Allen. Eisenberg in particular seems like he should be in every Woody Allen movie, if only just hanging around looking smarter than you. But Bruce Willis is a whole different deal. We should never assume, but I will be shocked if Willis shows up only half awake to something like a Woody Allen movie, and if you can get him to wake up he still turns in good performances. So what I’m saying is we might have a good Bruce Willis performance in our future.
We don’t know anything else about the film, which is pretty standard. But in the meantime, we can all look forward to Irrational Man, the older newer Woody Allen movie. It stars Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix and will come out July 24.
