Those among you with a zest for both the indie and international flavor might just remember a little movie from 2006 entitled Paris, je t’aime. It was a compilation of short stories from a wide range of directors, including actor Gerard Depardieu, Children of Men’s Alfonso Cuaron and the Coen Brothers, that showed off the neighborhoods of Paris and their tendency to bring love to light. It was an incredibly creative, unique sort of project that brought together some of film’s most eclectic talents.

And now, producer Emmanuel Benbihy is doing it all over again with New York, I Love You. With the change of scenery to the Big Apple also comes the opportunity to bring in a cornucopia of directorial and acting talent, all ready to express their love, albeit cinematically, for the city that never sleeps. Among the directors are The Namesake’s Mira Nair, Rush Hour 3’s Brett Ratner, Maria Full of Grace director Joshua Marston and first timer directors Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman. Among the cast are Blake Lively, Shia LaBeouf, Christina Ricci, Cloris Leachman, Hayden Christensen, Anton Yelchin, Orlando Bloom, Kevin Bacon, Maggie Q, Rachel Bilson, Ethan Hawke, Olivia Thirlby and many, many more.

It is a very exciting, incredibly alluring project that should turn out to be an interesting flick. As evidence of this, have a look at the first promotional teaser below.

New York, I Love You
is scheduled to hit theaters on February 13, 2009. Also, Emmanuel Benbihy is also currently working on Shanghai, I Love You for a 2010 release.
