It’s fantastic to have the possibility to work there, like when I shot ‘Manhattan’ in New York, ‘Match Point’ in London and ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’ in Barcelona.

In recent years Allen has filmed “Scoop” and “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” in London, and his next film out, “Midnight in Paris”, was shot in Paris. He did return to his Manhatten in 2009 for “Whatever Works”, but Europe seems to be a font of inspiration.
Don’t ask me about the script or the cast, I’m superstitious. I’m still at the screenplay stage, it would be silly to say more.”
