Allen's Midnight In Paris revealed

Woody Allen’s latest romantic drama, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger , is making its debut out of competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

But the director is wasting no time in setting up his next project, entitled Midnight In Paris .

Variety have announced the main plot for the film, which is a surprise considering how little the secretive Allen has revealed about Tall Dark Stranger (below). Here’s what they had to say:

“It’s a romantic comedy that follows a family traveling to the city for business, including a young engaged couple that has their lives transformed throughout the journey.

The film celebrates a young man’s great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.”

The impressive cast has also been unveiled, showing that Allen’s lost none of his star-baiting power.

For Midnight , he’s landed a pick 'n' mix of stellar talent, including Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Carla Bruni, Michael Sheen, Nina Arianda, Tom Hiddleston, Corey Stoll, Mimi Kennedy, and Kurt Fuller.

It’s a list to combat the star wattage of Tall Dark Stranger , which features Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin, Antonio Banderas and Anna Friel.
