Talk about jumping up to the big leagues: Slumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto has signed on for Woody Allen’s latest, untitled movie – and Naomi Watts is also jumping aboard.
Looks like Scarlett Johansson has some real competition, as Allen has put Pinto into the ingénue role.
She’ll star alongside Watts, Anthony Hopkins and Josh Brolin in a film that still – in true Allen style – does have an announced plot or name, though we do know it involves love and intrigue.
Oh, Woody… You do so love your secrets. And he was smart to grab her now – with Slumdog sweeping the Oscars, Pinto’s one of the hottest talents around.
It’ll all kick off shooting in London this summer.
Are you excited for Allen’s latest now that we get more Frieda Pinto?
