I've always loved San Francisco and just got back from a short vacation there, then found out Woody's shooting/setting his next film there. London, Barcelona, Paris, Rome...San Francisco, seemed like a natural progression of him stepping outside his comfort zone of New York and exploring interesting cosmopolitan cities, until I realized he made a couple of his earliest films there, so this actually is a return to his beginnings as a director. Aside from hardly being able to wait to see how he films the city, the cast includes Louis CK and Michael Emerson! (and...Andrew Dice Clay...?) Dice notwithstanding this just shot to the top of my most eagerly anticipated films of 2013.

From what I understand Louie is using Susan Morse as Editor, so that's probably how Louis CK hooked up with Woody Allen.

Woody must not have seen that episode of Louie where Louis acted in a movie.
And yes, I'm on a first name basis with both of these guys.
He was terrible!

He actually failed his first audition, which was for one of the principals...

Looks like the film's title is Blue Jasmine.

That's what the rumor is and Woody has called this one a "disappointment" already. Not that it means anything because he views his work by how closely the finished product is to how he imagined it.Markson wrote:Great title. Is it just me or do the cast and (brief, vague) plot description hint toward a more dramatic direction this time around?

Considering that when it comes to his films, Woody is a contrarian, this might actually be good news. Maybe it's so great, he's already getting some distance from it.ShellOilJunior wrote:Woody has called this one a "disappointment" already.

Well, Blue Jasmine ain't genius, I'll admit, but it––to me––is at least mildly poetic and evocative of the sensual following two blandly literal city-centric titles (albeit attached to two films I did enjoy).warren oates wrote:Really? For me Woody's titles have ranged from pretty bad to middling for a while now, much like the films themselves.Markson wrote:Great title.

Looks great, and yes, there does seem to be a strong Tennessee Williams influence. Neat to know now that the title specifically speaks to the emotional state of Blanchett's protagonist, but to me Blue Jasmine also sounds like the name of a lost Hoagy Carmichael tune. The trailer has also revealed this to be his third film shot in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio (following Manhattan and Anything Else).
