Woody Allen Plans Rhode Island Film; Shooting Starts Next Month

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ Rhode Island’s Film and Television Office has confirmed that director Woody Allen plans to film a movie in the state this summer.

Steven Feinberg, the office’s executive director, tell the Providence Journal that the movie will star actors Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone and will begin shooting in July.

The Boston Globe reports that Boston-based C.P. Casting is holding auditions for the movie by appointment this week.

Feinberg says the film will be eligible for the state’s film tax credit, which gives productions a tax discount up to 25 percent of money spent in Rhode Island. The tax credits are capped at $5 million per production.

There is no word on the plot or title of the film or when it will hit theaters.
