UPDATED – Naomi Watts Joins Woody Allen’s Next Neurotic Adventure!

Posted on 23 February 2009 by HansKlopek

Naomi Watts wants that Oscar bad.  Rumor has it ten minutes after Penelope Cruz won last night’s Oscar for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Watts meandered over to Allen’s seat and said “I want one of those.”  

naomi_wattsOkay, that’s a bold-faced lie, but it does seem the actress has signed on for a role in Woody’s as-yet-untitled upcoming film.  

She will be joining Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins, already attached to the project.

This is good news.  I like that Allen is changing up his tone and his cast, and I think that Watts is a fine actress.  While I didn’t like Funny Games, her performance was raw and unflinching.  

Not to mention her great performance as a model-turned-existentialist in the unfairly panned I Heart Huckabees.

I’m officially curious about this project.  Stay tuned for further developments.

UPDATE:  It seems Slumdog Millionaire’s beautiful Frieda Pinto has also been cast in Allen’s film.  This is a pretty cool cast…now if only we knew what the movie is about!  Here’s a gratuitous picture over which to swoon.
