Woody Allen, successfully barred from the US movie trade, mentioned on Monday that he has an concept for a New York movie able to go “if some silly particular person” agrees to finance it. Allen is on the Venice Film Festival, the place his fiftieth movie, Coup de Chance“, premiered in the non-competition part.

Coup de Chance has been shot with French actors in Paris, and it’s Allen’s first full movie in a overseas language. The 87-year-old Allen advised reporters it was “quite simple” working in French. “I might inform by the physique language and the emotion of the actors with out understanding the language when they have been being practical and when they weren’t.”

Allen first deliberate the movie about Americans in Paris, however he modified his thoughts. “I assumed to myself: It’s my fiftieth movie and I like Paris a lot that I’ll make it in French… And then I might suppose I’m a real European filmmaker,” he mentioned.

The four-time Oscar-winning director of Annie Hall

and different comedies has had a turbulent private life that has seen him more and more shunned by many celebrities and executives in Hollywood. He hit the headlines in the Nineteen Nineties following his affair and marriage to Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his former lover Mia Farrow, in addition to intercourse abuse accusations by their adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. He has at all times denied the accusations and was by no means charged.

Asked whether or not he would work in his native New York once more, Allen mentioned he already had a “nice concept” for a movie in the town.

“If some man steps out of the shadows and says we’ll finance your movie in New York and obey all my horrible strictures — they cannot learn the script, they cannot know who’s in it, they simply give me the cash and go away — if some silly particular person agrees to that, I’ll make a movie in New York,” he mentioned.
