When I was just beginning my journey through the history of cinema, I fell in love with Woody Allen. I'll never forget watching MANHATTAN for the first time which is, to this day, my favorite Woody Allen movie. His sense of comedy is so unique and, while it's never been matched, has been copied time and time again. Needless to say, I'm always anxiously awaiting his latest picture and YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER is no exception.

Like most of Woody Allen's films, he's kept a pretty tight lid on his latest. YWMATDS, as it will be referred to from here on out, is yet another film shot outside the United States; this time, he's shot in London. Like I said, I've been following this latest project for quite a while and I'm reminded of this quote from Allen back in October.

"The sun is a very, very big problem...I hate sunshine."

Of course, by choosing to shoot in London, Allen expected his shoot to be wrought with gloomy rainclouds. Instead, he was unfortunately greeted by weeks of sunshine. And, for someone as neurotic as Woody Allen, I expect this problem was quite serious.

If you're just as excited to see Woody Allen's latest project, check out some of the production stills that the folks over at Ropes of Silicon have dug up. The first is the above image, which features Allen giving direction to Anthony Hopkins. They've also uncovered what appears be a synopsis, though I could just tell you -"It's a Woody Allen film." That would get just about as much information. Here's the synopsis-

A little romance, some sex, some treachery and apart from that, a few laughs. The lives of a group of people whose passions, ambitions and anxieties force them all into assorted troubles that run the gamut from ludicrous to dangerous.

YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER stars Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin, and Freida Pinto. The film should hit theaters sometime this fall.
