Woody Allen continues his pattern of scouting famous European capitals to film his movies. The Oscar-winning director has got his eye on Copenhagen as the location for his next, still-untitled feature film.
This will be Allen’s first film set in Denmark and would follow Allen’s Oscar-winning movie Midnight in Paris, which was filmed in France. He shot two movies in London titled You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and Match Point; one in Spain called Vicky Cristina Barcelona; and Rome, where his last film Nero Fiddled, starring Ellen Page, Jesse Eisenberg and Penelope Cruz was set.
Allen’s long time European producer Letty Aronson is looking to team up with Per Holst, the Danish producer of Pelle The Conqueror.
Allen’s European mission to filmmaking has allowed him to tap into vast resources of capital to bankroll his projects. Copenhagen has set up a regional film fund to entice international film productions. The Danish government footing the bill is a major reason why Allen’s next film is set to start filming in Scandinavia next year.
